Teaching Fellow in the Social Sciences
Dr. Séamus Power is a trans-disciplinary scholar with expertise in social, cultural, and political psychology.
His multi-method research aims to comprehend how people experience and understand economic inequality from a psychological perspective: under what conditions can and do people living in democracies accept inequality without engaging in activities to effect social change? And under what circumstances does their tolerance turn to protest, rioting, and other forms of civic discontent?
Dr. Power is a Post-Doctoral Fellow with Professor Richard Shweder.
