Welcome to the Culture & Positive Psychology Research Lab at Goucher!

This lab is focused on two areas of research: (1) culture and positive psychology, and (2) anti-racist transformative learning.

Studies of culture and positive psychology center on people of Black African descent, with particular concern for examinations into:

  • Cultural Memory
  • Collective Consciousness
  • Cultural Identity
  • Cultural Coping
  • Cultural Praxis & Subjective Well-being

Studies of anti-racist transformative learning focus on inquiries into:

  • Motivations
  • Cognitive Frame of References
  • Mental Points of View
  • Habits Of Mind
  • Enactments
