Ph.D. Programme in Cultural Psychology And Social Practices


The Programme is meant to enhance the scholarly competence in, and widen the practical usability of, different trends of cultural psychology. Having become established in the last two decades as an interdisciplinary framework combining psychology, anthropology, sociology, and history. The Aalborg Programme is distinguished by its focus on the development of new qualitative methodologies for psychology, interdisciplinary enrichment in ideas and practices, and a focus on aesthetics of everyday life. Being located in the Department of Communication and Psychology, the Programme unifies perspectives from both of these areas. The working language of the Programme is English.

Aligned with Europe’s first Centre for Cultural Psychology established at the auspices of the Niels Bohr Professorship of Cultural Psychology, the Ph.D. Programme includes four topical sub-areas:

  • Cultural Psychology of Creativity (led by Lene Tanggaard and Vlad Petre Glâveanu)
  • Cultural Psychology and Aesthetics of Urban Living (led by Brady Wagoner and Christian Jantzen)
  • Cultural Psychology of Interventions in a Globalising World (led by Jaan Valsiner and Brady Wagoner)
  • Epistemology and Methodology of Cultural Psychology (led by Svend Brinkmann and Luca Tateo)
