Lecture | Steve Vaisey | Cultural Sociology and Moral Psychology

Episode Summary

In recent years, cultural sociologists have grown increasingly interested in psychology and some influential psychologists (e.g., Oishi et al 2009; Haidt 2012) have argued for closer connections to sociological theory and research. In this talk, I will outline some past and current work in which I have attempted to create bridges between sociology and psychology. I will also consider some concrete ways to improve interdisciplinary research on morality. (September 3, 2015) Sponsored by the Coalition of Graduate Sociologists (COGS) with support from the Department of Sociology and the CMBC.
