Ph.D. Course in Social Psychology and Micro-Sociology

When: 9th – 13th of June

Where: Linnæus University, Sweden

The course aims at promoting a general overview of methods, including experiments and simulation, and research questions typical of micro-sociology, social psychology, and other behaviorally oriented disciplines. It will also show how these instruments can be applied to improve our understanding of important social facets, such as social norms, social influence, collective action, and group identity.

The course is based on two lectures per day, Monday, June 9 to Friday, June 13. It will include both classroom lectures and laboratory activities. The latter ones are designed to give students a direct experience of participating in and running behavioral experiments and will present running examples of known simulation models.
