内容提要

讲座内容:The rice theory argues that the irrigation and labor requirements of paddy rice made southern China more tightly interdependent than the wheat-growing north. In this talk, Thomas Talhelm reports new findings: can rice culture take hold in an isolated rice village surrounded by wheat farmers and herders? What happens when people move from rice to wheat areas? Talhelm will also outline a more detailed, generalizable version of theory. This version can help explain puzzles like, if northern China and Western Europe are wheat cultures, why are they still so different?

主讲人:Thomas Talhelm is an Assistant Professor of Behavioral Science at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. Thomas has lived in China for five years as a Princeton in Asia fellow, as a freelance journalist in Beijing, and as a Fulbright scholar. He researches how rice farming gave southern China a very different culture from wheat-farming northern China. Thomas also founded Smart Air, a social enterprise that makes low-cost DIY air purifiers to help people in China protect themselves from air pollution. Thomas Talhelm 的研究兴趣包括文化对人类行为的影响。他最近的研究课题是大米和麦子种植与中国南北文化差异的关系,先后在《Science》,《Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin》,《Journal of Experimental Social Psychology》和《Current Directions in Psychological Science》等学术杂志上发表研究成果,其中2014年的论文是《Science》的封面文章。
