Human Development 133 Socio-Cultural Foundations of Development Winter 2017 Lecture: MWF 12-12:50 Professor: Steven Parish Email: [email protected] Office Hours: TBA Office Location: SSB 296 TA: TBA TA: TBA Welcome! Being a child anywhere involves living in a cultural world; becoming an adult and growing old anywhere involves the challenges of living in a cultural world. The capacity to integrate social and cultural factors in human development is a large part of what makes us human.. This course provides an expansive overview of the social and cultural foundations of human development. It is a complement to HDP courses that focus on development of the brain and cognition. It explores the ways human development is a bio-social -cultural process—a process that always occurs in a cultural context, shaped by the social life and cultural history of the social group into which the child is born. The course will focus on sociocultural aspects of the life course and developmental change from conception through adulthood and late life. Required Texts Available at Bookstore Bambi Chapin, Childhood in a Sri Lankan Village Sherry Turkle, Alone Together Steven Parish, Subjectivity and Suffering in American Culture: Possible Selves Please note: We are reading only parts of these books and you may wish to use copies that will be put on reserve at the library. On TritonEd: We (tentatively) plan to post all additional required readings on TritonEd (previously TED).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
