Dr. Moin Syed talk: A Developmental-Personality Perspective on Cultural Ideologies
Dr. Moin Syed talk: A Developmental-Personality Perspective on Cultural IdeologiesDr. Syed is an Associate Professor of psychology and Interim Associate Chair at the University of Minnesota.
Abstract: Should societies be structured in a way that recognizes and celebrates racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity, or should they seek to minimize the role of diversity in favor of a common identity? These two ideological positions, multiculturalism and colorblindness, respectively, have been the subject of a great deal of psychological research. Much of this work has been conducted by counseling and social psychologists, seeking to determine how endorsement of these different ideologies is related to a variety of social and political outcomes. Developmental and personality psychologists, however, have contributed relatively little to the discussion, despite the fact that they are well-positioned to address questions about the origins of cultural ideologies. In this presentation, I will describe a series of quantitative models suggesting that cultural ideologies are jointly informed by developmental variations in socialization and identity as well as individual differences in personality traits. I will then demonstrate how analysis of narrative data can help explain some of the observed quantitative patterns, illustrating the benefits of a mixed methods approach.
Dr. Will Dunlop talk on Life Stories
Dr. Will Dunlop talk on Life StoriesDr. Dunlop is an assistant professor of psychology and head of the personality and Identity laboratory at the University of California, Riverside.
Abstract: In this talk, I’ll provide an overview of my research on life stories. Life stories offer a wealth of information about narrators' personalities. In addition, the content of these stories has been associated with a host of important outcomes, including happiness/well-being and the recovery from substance abuse. Recently, my lab has begun to focus on life stories pertaining to the romantic domain. I'll spend most of the talk discussing this work. Among other pursuits, we've sought to document the manner in which the "typical" love life is conceived, the most salient events participants associate with their own love lives, and the relation between the content of love life stories and outcomes within the romantic domain (e.g., attachment styles, relationship dissolution).
