About the Authors
  • Culture across the Curriculum provides a useful handbook for psychology teachers in the major subfields of the discipline. From introductory psychology to the foundations in such areas as social psychology, statistics, research methods, memory, cognition, personality, and development, to such specialized courses as language, sexual minorities, and peace psychology, there is something here for virtually every teacher of psychology. In addition to discussions of the rationale for inclusion of cultural context in their areas of specialization, these experienced teachers also offer advice and ideas for teaching exercises and activities to support the teaching of a psychology of all people.

    • Infuses cultural concepts across the psychology curriculum
    • Provides diverse perspectives on the relation between psychology and cultural context
    • Offers ideas for teaching activities and exercises designed to integrate culture in teaching

    Reviews & endorsements

    'In this fascinating book, Keith and contributors face one of the most enduring challenges in teaching psychology: how to incorporate culture across the psychology curriculum? The result is a rich, multi-layered approach to cultural differences and their impact upon traditional psychological topics. A must-read for psychology teachers and students!' Saulo de Freitas Araujo, Federal University of Juiz de Fora, Brazil

    'While making a compelling argument for a culturally inclusive curriculum, this volume offers clear explanations and illustrations of key research findings on the role of culture within multiple psychology subfields, provides a wealth of resources and activities for making these findings come alive in the classroom, and equips instructors with the tools they need to identify additional opportunities for infusing a global perspective into their own courses.' Susan B. Goldstein, University of Redlands, California

    'This edited collection provides an invaluable resource for psychology educators wishing to decolonise the psychology curriculum, and to refresh their teaching. It is a timely, and potentially transformative, addition to every psychology teacher’s bookshelf, that offers practical tools to facilitate the development of global citizenship in psychology students.' Julie Hulme, The Psychologist
