Cultural Child Development

Cultural Nature of Child Development
In this course we will examine the cultural contexts and processes of child development. Our course will be organized by several core questions: What does childhood look like across diverse cultures? What do children typically do, what are their responsibilities, and how are they perceived? How are the sequences and endpoints of development culturally shaped, for example, in domains such as self, morality, memory, and reasoning? Our goal throughout will be to understand the dynamic interaction between culture and psychology; that is, how it is that culture “gets into” our minds and bodies, and how psychological processes create culture.
