On April 15, during Onderzoeksdag at The Hague University, I will give a workshop about my research on gossip.

I will first give a brief overview of what has been written about gossip in the literature. What are the mechanisms of gossip: who do we gossip with? Who do we gossip about? What are the specific topics of gossip, and what are the functions of gossip? Moreover, the effects of gossip and perception of gossipers will also be examined and discussed.

Participants will then be invited to evaluate various possible research questions and discuss how these can effectively be put into practise. The workshop will also explore how such research could be applied to teaching.

The workshop is from 2:00 – 3:00 pm in SL 5.86 at The Hague University. I hope to see you there!
