Hi all — Randi’s in the field in Oaxaca, so I’m doing the blogging honors. The first installment is retrospective. On 4/11, we continued our rambling reading spree on the topic of cultural cognition. We discussed the following papers:
Hutchins, Edwin. (2001). Distributed cognition. In N. J. Smelser & P. B. Baltes (eds .), The. International Encyclopedia of the Social and Behavioral Sciences.
Tomasello, M., Carpenter, M., Call, J., Behne, T. and Moll, H. (2005). Understanding and sharing intentions: The origins of cultural cognition. Brain and Behavior Sciences, 28, 721-727.
Alice Mitchell presented Tomasello et al; yours truly Hutchins.
And on 4/18, Kate Donelson lead the discussion of Clark (2005) (see below) and followed up her own act with some brandnew data of hers from running the Talking Animals task in Iowa.
Clark, H. H. (2005). Coordinating with each other in a material world. Discourse Studies 7: 507 – 525.
Returning to the future momentarily…
