Advanced Research on Culture and Emotion
PSYC 396
Spring 2014
Section: 01  

This course offers an in-depth examination of how culture (e.g., cultural values, norms) influences the emergence, experience, expression, and social consequences of emotions. Students will work in a team on a semester-long research project on culture and emotion (e.g., envy, humiliation, shame, happiness). The course includes advanced theoretical and empirical literature. The readings and research projects will give special attention to how gender intersects with culture in emotional experience and expression. Students will also learn how to adapt methods (e.g., narrative approaches; diary studies; field experiments) and techniques (e.g., adjustment of research measures to specific cultural communities; translation) to study emotions in their cultural context.
