Are you wondering why some people wear face coverings, while others do not? Or why countries, and even states have reacted very differently to the COVID-19 pandemic? Join Friends of the Charlestown Navy Yard for a virtual discussion with cultural psychologist, Michele Gelfand, about her illustrative findings detailed in her book, Rule Makers, Rule Breakers: How Tight and Loose Cultures Wire Our World.
In Rule Makers, Rule Breakers celebrated cultural psychologist Michele Gelfand takes us on an epic journey through human cultures, offering a startling new view of the world and ourselves. With a mix of brilliantly conceived studies and surprising on-the-ground discoveries, she shows that much of the diversity in the way we think and act derives from a key difference-how tightly or loosely we adhere to social norms.
The discussion will be held on Thursday, August 6, from 7:00-8:00 PM EDT.
Please RSVP to [email protected] if you would like to attend this discussion and we will send you a link to the zoom meeting
