Decolonizing Psychology

Globalization, Social Justice, and Indian Youth Identities

Sunil Bhatia

Explorations in Narrative Psychology

  • Uses a critical perspective to show how urban Indian youth across the different classes dismantle long-held beliefs about Eurocentric understandings of youth culture, identity, and subjectivities
  • Illustrates how narrative psychology can be useful in providing a counterpoint to the depoliticized, individualistic, universal, and scientific views of culture
  • Provides a powerful counterexample to monolithic formulations of self and identity found in cross-cultural psychology (and much of mainstream American psychology)
