Cultural Psychology

Fall 2021

Taught By: Faculty TBA

Section: A

CRN: 11738

Credits: 3

Fundamental to cultural psychology is the assumption that culture and mind make up one another. Because culture and mind are intertwined and cannot be neatly separated, any attempt to understand the mind must give serious consideration to cultural context. Research conducted from a cultural psychology perspective has illuminated how diverse socio-cultural contexts produce fascinating variability in emotion, reasoning, and even basic perception. The primary goal of this course is to study the principles, methods, major findings, and importance (both theoretical and practical) of cultural psychology. The course examines cultural influences on how individuals think, feel, and behave. Drawing on psychological, anthropological, and sociolinguistic work, attention is given to cross-cultural and within-culture variation in psychological functioning. Topics addressed include motivation, morality, self-concept, and social cognition.
