PSYC 233 - Research on Thinking in Societal Context


Students participate in ongoing interview research on the different knowledges and other resources people bring into their reasoning about complex situations, and on the manner in which people’s subjectivity and their modes of thinking are shaped by their societal context and cultural history, with particular attention to gender. Students receive training in interview practices and qualitative data analysis, and conduct hands-on specific analyses of interest to them and pertaining to this research project. Weekly lab meetings, including undergraduate students, graduate students involved in the research, and the instructor, are devoted to discussing the theoretical background of the research, its methodology and the students’ ongoing analyses.
