Since the mid-twentieth century, US social scientists studying face-to-face interaction have been by turns fascinated and frustrated by the “small” scale of their object and the scrutiny it seemed to demand. How did the “interpersonal” relate to the “institutional,” “micropolitics” to “mass” politics? Mr. Lempert is currently leading a team-based ethnography of “liberal listening,” funded by The Wenner-Gren Foundation.
