Primary Instructor:

The sociology of culture and cognition is a burgeoning subfield that examines how individual-level cognitive processes structure larger-scale cultural regularities, and how these regularities in turn affect cognition. This class will provide an overview of recent work in the subfield, and tie it to foundational ideas from the interdisciplinary field of cognitive science, as well as to broader debates within sociology. Specific topics may include cultural schemas, categorization, embodiment, collective memory, framing, dual-process cognition, connectionism, analogical reasoning, information processing, heuristics, and cognitive efficiency.
