講義タイトル:Culture and Psychology(文化と心理学)

This course will explore how we can better understand human behavior, thought, and feeling by taking into account the role of culture. This perspective has become increasingly important in research in the 21st century. The influence of culture extends from the basic processes of perception to our very sense of self; therefore, one can argue that conclusions based on studies done within only one culture may not apply to other cultures. In other words, a finding that seems true for all humanity may turn out to be true only for humans of a certain culture. In this light it is remarkable that so many foundational studies in psychology were conducted with participants from only one culture, often the US. In this class, we will study the interaction between culture and psychology. We will look at topics such as how culture influences perception, independent and interdependent construals of self, the role that culture plays in attributing both success and motivation, the Sapir-Whorf hypotheses, bilingualism, and culture and cognition. Perspectives from brain sciences will be included. In addition to lectures and academic readings, I would like for the students to reflect upon and discuss their own experiences with different cultures and languages.
