Hi, welcome to my blog. My name is Gordon Ingram and I am currently a Research Officer in the Interactions Lab at the University of Bath, working on the SIREN project. The aim of SIREN is to develop an educational computer game which will improve children’s ability to resolve conflicts with peers.
In this blog I will be posting material relating to children’s conflicts, and also to my wider interests in the relationship between mind and culture. I am interested in children’s social development from an evolutionary point of view – in how universal human psychological capacities are (designed to be) shaped by interactions with families and peers from particular cultural backgrounds.
