Examining social-psychology from the sociological perspective, this course deals with the relation between social and cultural structure, on the one hand, and self or personality on the other. Employing symbolic interactionism and affect control theory, the course shows how social interaction mediated by language is the well-spring of both social cognitions and emotions.

Prerequisites: 12-115 or 86-110 or 12-115.
