The Psychology Colloquium Series presents Dr. Daniel Oppenheimer on “Metaphor and Political Ideology: The Link Between Helicopter Parenting and Political Attitudes” on Friday, Sept. 14, from 11:50 a.m. to 12:40 p.m. in Porter 102.

Oppenheimer is Professor in the Social and Decision Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University.

“There is an awful lot of information in the world. Some of it is useful; most of it is not. How do people determine what information to use when making decisions, what is worth learning, how to search for the information they need, and what do people do when different pieces of information conflict and suggest different conclusions? Professor Oppenheimer’s research investigates these basic questions as well as how the answers impact real world outcomes in policy, business, and education,” says his web page.

His talk is part of the Social Judgment and Behavioral Decision-Making Colloquium Series at OHIO and is hosted by Dr. Kimberly Rios.
