Cultural Life Course Studies (CLS)

Illustration of human shape

The research group Cultural Life Course Studies (CLS) explores meaning making relations between the collective and personal cultures as historical events in the life of individuals, groups and society. This universal and persistent relation not only guides the person to live a cultivated life, but also serves as the foundation from which we live our lives in meaningful ways.

Cultural psychology is a psychological science aimed at understanding human development building on the premises that human beings live in a world full of objects with pre-existing meanings and that these meanings, as they are experienced, become personalized (and thus developed) – generating an (evolving) understanding of our self in the world and the world in our self.
