October 10th, 2018
In 2011, Michele Gelfand and her colleagues conducted a major cross-cultural investigation of the behaviors of 7,000 people in more than 30 countries. Published in Science, the study led Gelfand to develop the tightness-looseness classification system of cultures that is the focus of her new book. Gelfand explains how tight cultures have strong social norms and little tolerance for deviance, while loose cultures have weak social norms and are highly permissive. Gelfand, Distinguished University Professor at the University of Maryland, is featured in The Washington Post, NPR and the NYTimes.
