The Paris article is the one you’ll be reverse-outlining (sorry, Francisco — finding a good one on wine connoisseurship was harder than I thought!). The argument can be a little hard to follow, but it’s an interesting one — and why not ride the current wave of interest in meditation? Remember that your focus will be on pulling out the basic details of the research design, and proposing a replication of this research.

For tomorrow, we’ll discuss the documentary we watched on Tuesday, then review for the midterm. Please read the following:

By the way, here’s the piece I had in mind on the current status of the Council of Economic Advisers in the Trump administration.  The CEA, as the author tells us, functions as a kind of ‘in-house economic consultancy for the White House’, producing ‘economic analysis on nearly every issue the president faces’. I still can’t remember which other body of White House economic policy-makers I had in mind yesterday.

There is no new reading for Tuesday. Instead, please carefully review the material in Benokraitis (2015), Sections 5.2 (‘Nature-Nurture Debates’) and 5.5 (‘Gender Ideologies and Traditional Gender Roles’).

Before

  • HW Due: Administer & Analyse Your Survey
  • If you haven’t done the assigned reading on sampling (there was an awkward silence when I mentioned snowball sampling in class…), now is your time to catch up. If you’ve already read it, this is your chance to carefully review!

During

  • Lab: Sample Size

After

  • HW: Reverse Outline (Qualitative Methods)

  • Dalton Conley, ‘Gender’ (in Conley 2015)

By the way, here’s an interesting Op-Ed that appeared in the Sunday Times. The case the author makes (for more sociology in the public conversation) could be made equally as well for philosophy, political theory, and other ‘human sciences’, of course.
