Jeremy Yamashiro is a postdoctoral research associate at the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs and the Psychology Department. He studies social influences on remembering, collective memory, and moralized remembering. Current experimental work looks at how social network structures impact the propagation of misinformation and convergence into collective false memories. Prior work has examined how Americans represent their nation as a social entity that extends across time, and how political affiliation and religion shape both national memory and imagination of the collective future. Jeremy received his BAs in psychology and anthropology from the University of Utah, his PhD in Cognitive, Social, Developmental Psychology at the New School for Social Research in New York, and has done one prior postdoctoral fellowship at Washington University in St. Louis.
