The Working Group in Political Psychology is a biweekly interdisciplinary forum for the presentation and discussion of current research that uses a psychological and empirical orientation to examine the microfoundations of citizen and elite behavior. Our topics include but are not limited to identity, emotion, culture, beliefs, preferences (including public opinion and individual preferences), rationality, norms, cognition, group dynamics, ethnic politics, context effects, attribution, information, bargaining and trust. This is a methodologically plural forum open to faculty, graduate students, and other members of the academic community.

Lunch and discussion of the paper will begin at 12:00 p.m. and the location fluctuates during the Fall 2013 Semester. Please see the calendar for each session's location.
