The Sociology department congratulates Peter Salovey on his new appointment! See Yale news >>. Salovey, who is currently Yale’s Provost as well as the Chris Argyris Professor of Psychology, is also due to begin a courtesy appointment in Sociology in 2013. In addition to his Psychology Ph.D., Professor Salovey holds a 1980 masters degree in Sociology from Stanford University, where he did original research in sociologically-oriented social psychology. His eminent scholarship has always included a strong social dimension, not least in his present focus on emotion and intersubjectivity on the one hand and framing and health behaviors on the other. Yale Sociology is honored to welcome Peter into our ranks.
