The Working Group in Political Psychology and Behavior (WoGPoP) is an interdisciplinary forum for the presentation and discussion of current research that uses a psychological and empirical orientation to examine the micro-foundations 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.
The working group meets approximately every other week on Fridays (see calendar). Lunch and discussion of the paper begin at 12:00 p.m. in the Center for Government and International Relations (CGIS) South, room 050 (except for the graduate student session on 10/28, which will be held in CGIS Knafel 401). Contact WoGPoP coordinator David Romney (dromney AT fas.harvard.edu) with questions or to be added to the listserv.
