Gibson’s research interests include social interaction, language, deliberation, decision making, and social networks. He is the author of Talk at the Brink: Deliberation and Decision During the Cuban Missile Crisis (Princeton University Press, 2012). In this video, Gibson discusses his pioneering work toward a cohesive sociology of deception, analyzing secrets kept by corporations, government agencies, and other organizations.
“There are little threads in psychology, political science, and history, but I think I’m the first person to really try to bring those together into a coherent research agenda focusing on long-term deceptions and long-term lies,” said Gibson.
