Their projects are about violence in rap music (how violent is rap music, really, and has it become more violent over time?), causal attributions of poverty (what kind of poverty do people think about when they think about poverty’s causes, and does the kind of poverty they think about shape what they say about poverty’s causes?), and religious conservatives’ views about science (do religious conservatives think about science differently than nonreligious people and, if so, how?).
