Intraregional Migration in Latin America

Edited by: Vanessa Smith-CastroDavid SirlopúAnja Eller, and Hüseyin Çakal

Associated Courses: Political Psychology, Human Behavior in Social Environments

E-Collection: Full, Academic

War, political instability, and disparities in wealth and opportunity have long driven migration within Latin America, and this process shows no sign of slowing. This book addresses the psychosocial causes, consequences, and underpinnings of intraregional migration in Latin America.

Cross-cultural and social psychologists address the urgent issues that face migrants throughout Central and South America such as:

  • overt prejudice and discrimination, particularly toward immigrants of indigenous or African-American origin;
  • microaggressions;
  • the tendency to positively value fair skin and European surnames; and
  • political questions regarding the nature of citizenship and nationhood and links between legacies of colonialism and slavery and present-day inequality.

Researching Daily Life: A Guide to Experience Sampling and Daily Diary Methods

By: Paul J. Silvia and Katherine N. Cotter

Associated Courses: Qualitative Method, Research Methods and Design in Psychology

E-Collection: Full, Academic

Daily life research is the study of what people do in their ordinary environments in their everyday lives. This practical, beginner-friendly book provides students with the conceptual foundation and practical knowledge needed to examine psychological processes “up close” in ways that experimental and survey methods do not allow.

The basic approach is to collect data intensively over time, at least once a day for many days, in people’s natural environments rather than in research labs. The guide explains the entire process of the research project, including first selecting a design and developing survey items, then collecting and cleaning data, and finally analyzing and disseminating the findings.

The 2021 Full, Academic, and Clinical E-Collections are now available.

With three purchase options to select from, the 2021 E-Collections offer the ability to procure perpetual access to the relevant psychological research your users have come to rely on.
