Public Sociology Lecture: Sarah Cowan, "How Secrets Shape the Social World"

We all have secrets. We tell those secrets to some people and we keep them from others. We also hear others' secrets and some of that information we keep to ourselves and some we share. This talk documents the patterns in those acts of secret sharing and secret keeping. It further shows how all of these individual acts can aggregate to misperceptions about one's social network and contribute to a stasis in public opinion.
