ANT 339 - Psychological Anthropology (3 cr.)


This course explores the interaction between human cultural systems and the minds they inhabit. How do the norms and categories of different cultures shape the emotional experience of individuals? Is there a common mental framework that all human beings share, or are we fundamentally separated by the contexts in which we develop? Conversely, how do basic cognitive and emotional patterns shape the cultures that humans create? Examples are drawn from a wide range of ethnographic and theoretical contexts.
