Professor Michael Cole, “Culture in the Middle.”


Uploaded July 5, 2022. An interview with Professor Michael Cole. The interview was collected in 1995 at a conference of child developmentalists in Indianapolis. The original videographer’s name and the exact interview date are unknown. In 2013, Mike Cole provided me with a DVD that included this unedited material. In 2022, I found the DVD and edited the material into this 27-minute interview. Topics include cultural psychology, learning, the Laboratory of Comparative Human Cognition (LCHC), the 5th Dimension, education, equity, cultural diversity, standardized testing, cross-cultural research, anthropology, historical materialism, evolution, micro-cultures, after-school programs, and child development. Run time: 26:44.
