Cultural Psychology
PSYC 261
Fall 2011
Section: 01  

Through essays, novels, videos, and film, we will explore the intersection of culture, ideology, and psychology. We will examine how gender, ethnicity, and class are interwoven in the social fabric and individual identity. Employing feminist, psychoanalytic, and deconstructive interpretive methods, we will try to decipher the many ways we inscribe ourselves in culture.

Essential Capabilities: Interpretation
Interpretation is essential in understanding. We will see how various methods of interpretation (feminist, psychoanalytic, and deconstructive) applied to texts, films, photographs, and experiential accounts help us to see race, class and gender in far more complex ways.
