Psychology for a Better World

I really enjoyed this interview:

Deputy Head of the Department of Psychology at the University of Auckland, whose new book is Psychology for a Better World:Strategies to Inspire Sustainability (22′57″)

Note also: while she asks that people not circulate the e-book, Harre does make the book freely available electronically at http://www.psych.auckland.ac.nz/uoa/home/about/our-staff/academic-staff/niki-harre/psychologyforabetterworld (she wants to keep track of the book’s reach and the website is critical for this)

About backyardbooks

This blog is a kind of electronic storage locker for ideas and quotes that inform my research... literary research into fiction for young adults (with a special focus on New Zealand fiction). Kiwis are producing amazing literature for younger readers, but it isn't getting the academic appreciation it deserves. I hope readers of this blog can make use of the material I gather and share by way of promoting our fiction. Cheers!
