Sample Classes

Our Speech and What It Signals: Speaker-Receiver Dynamics and Implications of the Words We Choose: Friday, December 2nd

Join us to learn more about 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 competence (eg. 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!
