Cultural Psychology: A Developmental Perspective|
Spring 2007 not offered
|Course Cluster: Service-Learning|
Cultural psychology is an interdisciplinary field, where the focus is jointly on the person and culture, and how both are mutually constructed. This course will draw from cultural psychology, cultural studies, and anthropology to examine the theoretical underpinnings and empirical work of the field and will incorporate a developmental perspective. Topics will include the theoretical underpinnings of cultural psychology, the role of cultural activities in communities, how cultural change occurs, and how culture influences child rearing and adolescent development.
