Overview

The nature of society is rapidly changing. Traditional social, cultural and geographic boundaries are being replaced with increasingly complex representations of identity. We are required to confront new ways of partitioning our social worlds, and this in turn creates new questions and demands for social scientists, practitioners and policymakers.

This volume offers an integrated approach to these questions and demands, exploring the psychological implications and applications of new forms of social and cultural diversity. Leading scholars offer contributions from a range of psychological perspectives, including research on social identity and social categorization, multiculturalism and biculturalism, organizational behavior, intergroup contact, prejudice, projection, creativity, and stereotype threat.

The volume documents advancements in the field, explores converging links between research programs, and offers a contemporary understanding of the psychology of social and cultural diversity that directly addresses social intervention and policy implications.
