The Centre for Cultural Psychology at Aalborg University is the first international research hub dedicated to investigating in the field of Cultural Psychology and cognate disciplines. The people at Centre for Cultural Psychology promotes an intense activity of peer-reviewed book series and international journals publishing. In this page you can find information about our editorial initiatives.
Cultural Psychology is the science of human beings studying the higher mental functions in their historically and socially situated developmental trajectories. Research at the Centre for Cultural Psychology focuses on the qualitative study of individual and collective phenomena expressed through the products of human meaning-making activity, such as creating, imagining, remembering, dwelling, learning, crossing, travelling, making art, and caring. The centre’s staff aims at going beyond academic compartments (education, development, social, clinical, etc.) to focus on the processes that by definition are not cuttable into disciplinary “slices”.
Our work at the centre is thus highly interdisciplinary and counter-hegemonic intellectual programme of Cultural Psychology which is cultivated through a restless search for innovative ideas and a high scientific productivity. The centre’s staff edits a number of international peer-reviewed publications to provide innovative, visionary, reckless, rigorous, and competent researchers with the possibility of participating in a scientific endeavour of developing future ideas.
Each of the centre’s publication channels is characterised by its specific aims and goals, but they are all understood to innovate. We warmly invite authors, especially early-stage researchers, to develop their ideas with us, to visit the centre in Aalborg in Denmark and to submit their work. We are particularly, but not exclusively, interested in inter-disciplinary work between psychology and humanistic or developmental sciences. For each publication channel, you can find below, the contact person and the website.
