ASA-AMSS Panel on Generosity, Morality, and Altruism: Global Studies in Cross-Cultural Values
From Patricia Herzog
This panel aims to advance cross-cultural approaches to studying generosity, morality, and altruism. The purpose is to better understand other-oriented activities across cultural contexts. In particular, the panel will focus on these understudied world regions: Asia, the Middle East and Turkey, Africa, and Latin America. Panelists will present the findings of meta-analyses of existing scholarship in conjunction with summaries of informational interviews with scholars and practitioners based in these under-studied global regions. Implications for future studies will be discussed.
