About this title


With the rapid growth of knowledge concerning ethnic and national group differences in human behaviors in the last two decades, researchers are increasingly curious as to why, how, and when such differences surface. The field is ready to leapfrog from a descriptive science of group differences to a science of cultural processes. The goal of this book is to lay the theoretical foundation for this exciting development by proposing an original process model of culture. This new perspective discusses and extends contemporary social psychological theories of social cognition and social motivation to explain why culture matters in human psychology. We view culture as a loose network of imperfectly shared knowledge representations for coordinating social transactions. As such, culture serves different adaptive functions important for individuals' goal pursuits. Furthermore, with the increasingly globalized and hyper-connected multicultural space, much can be revealed about how different cultural traditions come into contact. The authors discuss the psychological ramifications of these cultural interactions to illuminate the social and practical relevance of the proposed process model of culture.

About the Author:

Angela K.-y. Leung is an Assistant Professor of Psychology in the School of Social Sciences at the Singapore Management University (SMU). She received her Ph.D. in Social Psychology at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, in 2007. Her research seeks to understand how people participate actively in dynamic cultural processes in both intra- and intercultural contexts, as well as the psychological implications for multicultural competence (e.g. creativity and intercultural communication). She is also interested in the role of embodiment in the acquisition and endorsement of cultural values. Dr Leung has published close to 20 refereed book chapters and articles in journals such as Advances in Experimental Social Psychology, American Psychologist and Psychological Science. She has won several research awards, including the first honorable mention for the Otto Klineberg Intercultural and International Relations Prize from the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (SPSSI) in 2009, the Lee Foundation Research Excellence Award, and the School of Social Sciences Research Excellence Award conferred by SMU. She also served as a reviewer for peer-reviewed journals, such as the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, the Journal of Consumer Research and the Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, and as a reviewer for social psychology grant proposals submitted to the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF).
