"Can folklore shape attitudes towards trust, risk-taking and gender norms?". Policy Implications Podcast #6
We invite you to listen to the new episode of the Policy Implications Podcast - "Can folklore shape attitudes towards trust, risk-taking and gender norms?".
Guest: dr Melanie Meng Xue - New York University (Abu Dhabi)
In this episode of the Policy Implications Podcast we discuss how oral traditions (such as stories, beliefs and customs) can be a powerful measure of contemporary attitudes towards trust, risk-taking and gender norms. Also, we discuss if we should pay special attention to myths and stories that we tell our children and whether folklore affects the way their economic norms are formed.
More details on the research discussed in this episode can be found here.
