Group Dynamics Fall 2023 Seminar Series: Psychological Diversity across the Globe
Do our cultural contexts influence our psychology and behavior — and if so, how? In this RCGD series, we delve into the socio-ecological, histo-cultural, and economic dynamics shaping the diversity of selfhood and its associated cognitive, emotional, and motivational processes. We go beyond the traditional East and West focus to include a wide range of cultural groups. This series will elucidate the implications of psychological diversity across the globe for policies in international relations, politics, economics, business, immigration, and other relevant domains.

Organized by Shinobu Kitayama and Catherine Thomas
As permissions allow, seminars from this series are later posted to ISR's YouTube playlist.

In person: ISR Thompson 1430
The series runs Mondays from 3:30 to 5.

About the Group Dynamics Seminar Series

The Group Dynamics Seminar series is considered one of the longest running seminar series in the social sciences. It has been running uninterruptedly since it was founded by Kurt Lewin in the 1920’s in Berlin. A very important feature of this seminar today is its interdisciplinary nature. Recent seminars have included discussions in “Law and Psychology,” “Racism and Discrimination,” “Social Media,” and “Political Polarization.” The series is offered by the Research Center for Group Dynamics (RCGD), at the Institute for Social Research.
