What do we mean by human 'development?' In this advanced seminar we will critically examine ideas of human development in recent work in developmental psychology, critical developmental psychology, cultural psychology, and interdisciplinary Childhood Studies. An important component of students' work in this course will be to critically evaluate how the concept of 'development' informs their own academic studies, including areas not listed above such as education, educational psychology, and developmental neuroscience. This course is recommended for students whose Division II concentrations intersect with the Childhood, Youth, and Learning (CYL) program and/or the Culture, Brain, and Development (CBD) program. Prerequisite: At least one previous course in Psychology.
