Professor Patrick Leman

Research interests

Patrick Leman's research focuses on children's conversations, communication, learning and social development. A central interest is how social identities (gender and race) influence the style of communication, interaction and the knowledge that children construct. Another related question concerns the forms of argument and negotiation that children use in interaction with others. Other research in social and developmental psychology includes beliefs about conspiracy theories, the social basis of knowledge and evidence, moral reasoning and the psychology of gender.
