In this seminar, we will examine a range of methods used to study social cognition in young children. We will scrutinize the strengths and weaknesses of different methodological approaches and explore how insights from different methods can complement each other in furthering our understanding of children's social-cognitive development. For this purpose, we will read and discuss research papers, analyze the interpretative possibilities afforded by different methodological tools, and brainstorm how different methods could be utilized to address open research questions. The seminar will consist of presentations, group work, and group discussions.
