Culture Psychology and Liminality
Doctoral School of the Humanities at Aalborg University
This Doctoral Summer School is meant to provide opportunities for PhD-aspirants in psychology, anthropology, history, education, and semiotics to learn the basic principles of cultural organization of the human mind. The thematic focus of this year’s summer school will be on liminality, which provides an analytic tool for investigating movement and change of people and cultural forms. The unique aspect of this Summer School is concrete joint work on methodology—developing new solutions to the needs of participants to introduce concepts from cultural psychology and anthropology into their particular research projects.
