***UPDATED Summer 2021 Sample Classes
- Tues, July 13: 4:00-5:00pm: Our Speech and What It Signals: Speaker-Receiver Dynamics and Implications of The Words We Choose
The topic is related to the psychology of language. Dr. Pastizzo will share two experiments that Geneseo students enjoy. One is on how hedge word usage (um, uh) actually helps the listener, and the other is on how negative framing to express something positive like competance (e.g., not stupid) can actually perpetuate stereotypes.
Most students will take a psychology course at some point in their college career, so this will be a great introduction to some of the fascinating subjects you might learn about!
