Sahana Mukherjee


As a social and cultural psychologist, her research focuses on topics of social justice with an emphasis on the role of cultural tools (e.g., museums, educational curricula) in the reproduction of privilege and disadvantage. She utilizes a diverse methodological toolkit—including qualitative and quantitative methods in the laboratory and in the field—to apply psychological theories to social issues in North American and South Asian spaces. Her teaching and mentoring philosophy is aligned with my research interests, and she strives towards promoting students’ sense of critical consciousness. She earned a B.A. in Psychology, and Sociology, and English Literature from Christ University, India (2007) and M.A. and Ph.D. in Social Psychology from the University of Kansas (2014). Currently, she is an Assistant Professor at the Psychology Department in Gettysburg College.
