Gordon, W. J. (1907). Round about the North Pole.

Max and I recently had the opportunity to talk to Barnard students in Stephanie Pfirman’s Exploring the Poles first year seminar about how games can be used as tools for effective communication.

To start things off, Max introduced Buffalo, and the students played for ten minutes. From our vantage point, it looked like there was fierce competition.

SPSP Conference

This past week, I attended and presented three posters at the annual Society for Personality and Social Psychology conference in San Antonio, Texas. The conference began for me with the Intervention Science Preconference, which made its SPSP debut. The day was filled with talks about how we can harness social psychology to create interventions to benefit society. Some of the highlights included listening to Dr. Mikki Hebl talking about her work on sexism, Dr. Betsy Levy Paluck discussing her research on creating anti-conflict interventions for adolescents, and Dr. Stephanie Fryberg describing her work with the newly founded school for the Tulalip tribes. During the poster session, I presented two of our studies on climate change to the other preconference attendees. At the main conference, I presented a poster on our work on gender bias in understanding STEM narratives as well as a poster on how relationship beliefs impact the way people think about ending relationships. Overall, it was an excellent conference and getting to hear about the current research in the field was invigorating.
