PSY-PC 1700: Social and Emotional Context of Cognition

Craig Smith is Associate Professor of Psychology and Human Development as well as Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies at Peabody College. In PSY-PC 1700, he works with students to understand how the ways we perceive the world impact  a variety of cognitive processes, guiding the students through considerations of the social construction of reality and how it affects human behavior. In this teaching visit, students are beginning a unit on prejudice and discrimination.  Craig will use a combination of lecture and discussion to help students consider the nature of racial stereotypes and how they are related to normal cognitive processes. In the post-visit discussion, we may discuss ways in which Craig structures the class to allow safe and open discussion about this and other difference- and power-related topics in the course.

Date: Friday, January 30th
Time: 11:10-1:25 (class, 11:10-12:25; discussion, 12:25-1:25)
