Does culture influence people's feelings? To answer this
question, our lab uses a variety of methods (survey, archival,
interview, observational, experimental, experience sampling, and psychophysiological) to compare people's affect (i.e., emotions,
moods, and other feeling states) within and across cultures. Our
goal is to produce research and theory that broaden our current
understandings of affect and culture in ways that are both
scientifically and clinically useful. Our projects are funded by
the National Institute of Mental Health, the National Institute
on Aging, the National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia
and Depression, the Stanford
Center for Advanced Decision Making in Aging, the Case
Western Institute for Unlimited Love, and the Center for Compassion
and Altruism Research and Education.
You can find us in the Psychology Department at Stanford
University. The Psychology Department is located in Jordan Hall,
which is located in the Main Quad, the large Spanish style building
at the end of Palm Drive. The Culture and Emotion Lab is on the
second floor of Jordan Hall.
