Psychology of Race, Power and Culture
Psychology and race" is a rapidly expanding area in the history of psychology encompassing the cultural contexts of psychological thought. We explore black ideas for secondary and higher education, how ethnic minorities entered into U.S. psychology, Jewish influences on cultural psychology in Russia, shame/guilt in Japanese psychology, an Afrocentric psychologist activist, and much more. In each case study, we focus on leading figures and place them in a cultural context. Discussion-based course, home works, films, quizzes, no final, and racial autobiography or research paper. WI
