Sam Sommers Explains Why Situations Matter

Sam Sommers, author of SITUATIONS MATTER

Sam Sommers is an award-winning teacher and researcher of social psychology at Tufts University outside Boston.

His research specialties include how people think, communicate, and behave in diverse settings, as well as psychological perspectives on the U.S. legal system.

At Tufts, Sam is known for his engaging lecture style and has won multiple teaching awards, including Professor of the Year in 2009.

He was also voted the “hottest” male professor on campus by the student newspaper.

In his free time, Sam enjoys hanging out with his wife and two daughters, blogging on the Psychology Today website, batting lead-off for the vaunted Tufts Psychology summer softball team, and exerting more effort than he probably should editing Seinfeld and Daily Show clips for use in the classroom.
