Background and Interests

Dr. Morling focuses on both undergraduate teaching and cultural psychology research. She regularly teaches courses on research methods, cultural psychology, the self-concept, and the teaching of psychology, and has published a textbook in research methods. Dr. Morling's most recent scholarly research has focused on how culture shapes human motivation and social life, as well as where cultural differences are located and measured—whether within the person, or in cultural products such as media, texts, or buildings. She is a Fulbright scholar, having lectured and conducted research in Kyoto, Japan from 2010-11. She is the Delaware State Professor of the Year (2014), an award from CASE and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching.
