We are pleased to announce that the School of Economics, University of East Anglia, will be hosting the first workshop on Cultural Transmission and Social Norms.

Social norms are an important social cement, allowing people to cooperate in areas that legal sanctions and contract enforcement cannot reach. Norms are typically internalized over the life course, beginning in childhood, and are transmitted by formal and informal institutions, including families, schools, media, firms and the state. The workshop brings together leading researchers from a range of disciplines, including economics, history and psychology, to share perspectives on how social norms are transmitted within societies, at both macro and micro levels. 

Confirmed Speakers; Johannes Abeler, Nick Bardsley, Zvonimir Basic, Manuel Eisner, Erin Krupka, Xueheng Li, Michael Muthukrishna, Pete Richerson, Bob Sugden, Marcella Veronesi, Felix Warneken, Fabian Winter, Emily Wyman, Erez Yoeli, Ro'i Zultan.
