My research investigates how sociality mediates experience and the implications it has for decision-making, with a particular emphasis on contract and intellectual property law and internet policy. This inquiry emphasizes an examination of Erving Goffman’s work in relation to political and socio-legal theory. It is part of a larger project concerning the necessity of a cognitive sociology of law, particularly in the internet age where shifts in commerce affects the reification of privacy.
