Faculty: Sasha Kimmel (Psychology)

Fellow: Bill O'Hara (Music)

In Sasha Kimmel’s Spring 2016 course, Psychology of the Political Left and Right, students undertook interviews of subjects whose political views are diametrically opposed to their own. Later, in a podcast in the style of “This American Life,” students reflected on what the interview process taught them about the psychology behind political identity in America.
