"The Culture of Science"

Wednesdays, 12-1, Multicultural Center (229 Roberts Road). Open to all ... contact Anne Dalke or Elizabeth McCormack for additional information.

Next meeting:

2 October

Rob Wozniak
will facilitate group discussion of methods of inquiry across disciplines including literary studies, psychology, and the biological and physical sciences. To get the conversation going, Rob will report results of a number of conversations on methods of inquiry in various disciplines that he has had with members of the discussion group and others over the past week, using the many methods in common use in psychology (sometimes known as "the impossible science") as a starting point. Rob himself is a developmental psychologist whose research interests include modeling the development of movement/vocalization coordinations in infants, subcultural variation in American relational family values, and the early history of American psychology (in both its experimental and clinical versions).
