Goals

Culture and Personality, also known as Psychological Anthropology, investigates the role of culture in forming personality, and considers problems of individual adjustments to demands of culture.

This course focuses on comparative psychological and sociopsychological approaches to culture. Through this seminar we will investigate personality and psychological conditions in various cultures, with the goal of better understanding the relationships between culture and the individual in an "ecocultural framework."

We will also examine anthropological investigations that make use of cross-cultural psychological concepts and methods.

And we will explore what it means, psychologically, to be human.
