Aidan Combs



I study how identities affect and are affected by social interaction, particularly in contexts in which people interact with strangers or with people who are anonymous. In these kinds of contexts in which we do not know much about our interlocutors, what do we assume, what do they assume about us, and how do those assumptions affect the course of our interaction? My work is generally rooted in sociological social psychology and is often relevant to political sociology and the sociology of culture.
