*Taught Online for Summer 2021* Talking to people is seemingly easy—we do it all the time. But when we think about the sheer number of people we’ve talked to, and the fact that we communicated successfully with so many of them, conversation doesn’t seem so trivial any more. What allows us to understand (and be understood by) others in conversation? This course explores how conversation works, and the psychology behind communication. Students will be introduced to basic theories of communication, learn to read and think about scientific research articles, and engage in hands-on activities.
