Division 10 - Psychology and the Arts
interdisciplinary scholarship, both theoretical and empirical, encompassing the visual arts, poetry, literature, music, and dance.
Broadly conceived, we study three interrelated topics: creativity
(including developmental, motivational, affective, and cognitive processes), the arts (including aesthetic content, form, and function),
and audience response to the arts (including preferences and judgments). To this end, we apply personality, clinical, cognitive,
perceptual, cultural, and postmodern psychologies to diverse artists, styles, and epochs.
