CY, Ying-Yi, and I would like to announce the launching of a new Advances in Culture and Psychology Series that is being published by Oxford University Press. The series is modeled after the Advances in Experimental Social Psychology, and is publishing mature research programs across the discipline of culture and psychology, broadly defined. Below is the contents of Volume 1. We are also attaching a forward to the series by Richard Shweder and our introduction. The idea for this Advances series came up at a coffee break at our wonderful Hong Kong conference in December 2006! Please be in touch if you are interested in publishing your work in the series.


Best regards,

Michele, CY, and Ying-Yi
