Resources for teaching Political Psychology

Posted by Jolanda van der Noll •

Building on the fruitful discussion from the JSC roundtable at the annual meeting last summer (, the JSC would like to continue it by inviting you to engage as well.  We propose a conversation about experiences, pedagogies, and strategies for scholars interested in teaching political psychology classes.  What are your ideas about teaching political psychology in undergraduate and graduate classes? 

Currently there are two course outlines from 2011 available on the ISPP website and we want to expand this with examples of undergraduate and graduate courses.  Let us know what sources you use, and add to the following list:

Oxford Handbook of Political Psychology by Leonie Huddy, David O. Sears and Jack S. Levy (editors)

Political Psychology: Key Readings by John T. Jost and Jim Sidanius (editors)

Introduction to Political Psychology by Martha L. Cottam, Beth Dietz-Uhler, Elena Mastors and Thomas Preston

Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman
