Area of Study
Goals: To investigate the ways in which culture and psyche make each other up, and to gain experience conducting interviews. Content: Beginning with the premise that all psychologies are "ethno-psychologies" and systems of health care are best understood when approached through the matrix of culture, this course will explore a wide range of issues broadly construed under the category of cultural psychology and mental health. Lectures and readings focus on the "borderland" between anthropology, psychiatry/psychology, and medicine. Students conduct person-centered ethnographic interviews in order to analyze the ways individuals tend to think of themselves in relation to their cultural worlds. Taught: Alternate years. Prerequisites: ANTH 1160 or PSY 1330 Credits: 4
