Speaker: Jennifer Prewitt-Freilino, RISD Title: Conveying and Reproducing Gender Hierarchies through Language. Abstract: Despite sensationalized media reports that claim women may soon be surpassing men in terms of wealth, power, and status, data from around the world demonstrate a clear and persistent gap between men and women. Clearly, many factors contribute to this gap and there are divergent theories that attempt to explain how differences in men and women emerge and persist. This presentation will focus on the relationship between gender inequality and language, highlighting the potential of language to shape gender hierarchies. I will present research in which I examined at the relationship between the grammatical gender of dominant languages used within a country and indices of gender equality, demonstrating that countries with gendered languages demonstrate lower levels of gender equality. I will also present some of my more recent work on the use of first person pronouns as a gendered marker of status. Discussion will focus on how subtle, seemingly mundane aspects of language may ultimately shape notions of power and status. http://www.brown.edu/Departments/CLPS/events Metcalf Research Laboratory, Room 305 Dept: CLPS, Brain Science Program, Biology and Medicine, Lectures, Conferences, and Meetings, Departments, Lectures

    October 29, 2014 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM Michael S. Goodman '74 Memorial Lecture Series. Speaker: Daniel McAdams, Northwestern University. Title: The Redemptive Self: How Generative Adults Narrate Their Lives. Abstract: Generativity is an adult's concern for and commitment to promoting the well-being of future generations. Past research has shown that adults who score high on self-report measures of generativity tend to be positively and meaningfully engaged in their families, communities, and societal institutions. But generativity is hard work, involving thankless tasks and long-term commitments to uncertain ends. Accordingly, many highly generative adults construct and draw upon an especially powerful story for their lives to support their generative commitments -- a story I call the redemptive self. The story describes how a gifted protagonist journeys forth into a dangerous world, equipped with moral steadfastness and overcoming adversity on the way to leaving a positive legacy of the self for future generations. I will describe empirical research that links this kind of redemptive life narrative to generative lives, and I will examine cultural variations on the redemptive self that appear in narratives of atonement, recovery, personal emancipation, and upward social mobility. The findings suggest that shaping one's life into a redemptive form may bring with it the benefits of strong societal engagement and enhanced well-being for American adults, even as the story hints at certain cultural shortcomings and limitations.

Abstract: We are immersed in language variation---from different languages to social and regional variation within a language. But how does language variation begin? In this talk, I will report on an Agent-based modeling project that investigates the workings of linguistic variation by spreading agents armed with a simple form of concept formation and spreading them over space and time. The object of the simulations was to explore the space of possible mechanisms that could account for social variation in language; how such variation emerges; the trajectory that variation can take over time; and how such variation, in certain circumstances, can be sustained. We'll show that variation can arise in a linguistics homogeneous population that is contains segregated networks of language leaders. Along the way, we will try to demonstrate ancillary results about the wave model of linguistic change that arise from the spatial array of our agents. In sum, we will argue that understanding language variation and change must involve the interplay of psychological factors and social factors. http://brown.edu/Departments/CLPS/events Metcalf Research Laboratory, Room 101, Friedman Auditorium Colloquia, Open to the Public, Dept: CLPS, First Years, Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors, For Masters candidates only, For PhD candidates only, Audience, Brain Science Program, Biology and Medicine, Lectures, Conferences, and Meetings, Faculty, Staff, Postdocs, Departments

    November 14, 2014 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM Friedman Family Lecture in Cognitive, Linguistic & Psychological Sciences. Speaker: Joachim Krueger Ph.D (Oregon). Professor, Brown University Professor Krueger’s research interests focus on inductive reasoning in social context. This includes the areas of self-perception, intergroup perception and relations, as well as behavior in social dilemmas. He is particularly interested in social projection, which determines how and when people assume that others will behave as they themselves do. He has found that social projection can increase the accuracy of social perception, and make people more willing to cooperate with others. However, social projection also contributes to ingroup favoritism and conflict between groups. http://clps-scbb.weebly.com/ http://www.brown.edu/Departments/CLPS/events Metcalf Research Laboratory, Room 101, Friedman Auditorium Dept: CLPS, Brain Science Program, Biology and Medicine, Departments
