This course focuses on the cutting-edge research from the recently emerged, exciting field of cultural psychology. We discuss major theories and findings that integrate cultural perspectives into psychology, and consider methodological issues unique for studying the role of culture in psychological processes and functioning. Drawing on recent work in social psychology, developmental psychology, cognitive psychology, environmental psychology, and cultural anthropology, we consider a variety of topics (e.g., cognition, conceptual systems, the self, morality, emotion, epistemologies, environmental thought) from cultural perspectives.
