Culture & Social Cognition

Term: Spring 2013

Subject Code: GPSY

Course Number: 6346

A fundamental agenda of cultural work in psychology is to identify cultural dimensions of existing psychological claims as well as cultural variation in basic psychological processes. In this seminar, we examine central topics in contemporary social psychology from the perspective of cultural psychology. Our focus is on theory and research in the areas of motivation, morality, social relationships, and self concept. We give consideration to why and how culture is neglected in psychology and to key challenges that are critical to address in cultural work.
