Personal Information: I graduated from the University of Michigan's joint program in Psychlogy and Sociology in 1970. I started my scholary career interested in social interaction and emotional communication in classroom settings. My love affair with psychodynamic perspectives has cooled but never died. How I got from there to the social psychology of scientific controversy, with side interests in relational development in cyberspace and popular culture (music and television talk shows) is a long story that I'd be happy to relate to specific individuals who contact me. At present, I'm a Professor of Social Psychology in the department of Sociology and Anthropology at Lehigh University.
