Social Psychological Analysis of a Cultural Artifact
[WLOs: 3, 4, 5] [CLOs: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7]
Graduate students and professionals are often tasked with presenting their work at a professional meeting or conference. The final presentation provides an opportunity to practice this skill. This presentation is a culmination and extension of the analyses you submitted in previous weeks on social thinking (Week 2), social influence (Week 3), and social relations (Week 4). You may also apply insight from this week’s discussion of prejudice. Your presentation is not merely a compilation and resubmission, but rather a synthesis of the three earlier elements. Be sure to incorporate previous instructor feedback.
