Field Notes from the Quest for the First use of Acculturation
AuthorRudmin, Floyd Webster
Quest begin in the vauge way, as an interest or an orientation, and maybe as a collection of skills. I was probably bent towards this quest at Queen's University, where I was mentored in cross-cultural psychology by John Berry, where I served as a TA in Milt Suboski's statistics and research methods courses, and where I learned the lore of history of psychology with David Murray. Quests often begin unplanned, by happenstance, one thing leading to another. In this case, it was my taking a position at the University of Tromsø, in Norway, arriving just when the first graduating class was seeking supervisors for their thesis research.
