Titre du projet
This theoretical project aims at understanding the dynamics of imagination from a sociocultural psychology perspective. Involving various collaborations and secondary analysis of diverse data, it has so far brought to modelise the loop of imagination, understood as individual and collective dynamic, and its outcomes in terms of problem solving, development, and social change. It also aims to examine imagination in the lifecourse, as well as resources and constraints for imagining. Further issues involve the relations between imagination and learning, remembering, creativity, etc.

- PublicationAccès libreExperience on the Edge: Theorizing Liminality(Cham (Switzerland): Springer, 2021)
;Wagoner, BradyLiminality has become a key concept within the social sciences, with a growing number of publications devoted to it in recent years. The concept is needed to address those aspects of human experience and social life that fall outside of ordered structures. In contrast to the clearly defined roles and routines that define so much of industrial work and economic life, it highlights spaces of transition, indefiniteness, ambiguity, play and creativity. Thus, it is an indispensable concept and a necessary counterweight to the overemphasis on structural influences on human behavior. This book aims to use the concept of liminality to develop a culturally and experientially sensitive psychology. This is accomplished by first setting out an original theoretical framework focused on understanding the ‘liminal sources of cultural experience,’ and second an application of concept to a number of different domains, such as tourism, pilgrimage, aesthetics, children’s play, art therapy, and medical diagnosis. Finally, all these domains are then brought together in a concluding commentary chapter that puts them in relation to an overarching theoretical framework. This book will be useful for graduate students and researchers in cultural psychology, critical psychology, psychosocial psychology, developmental psychology, health psychology, anthropology and the social sciences, cultural studies among others.
- PublicationMétadonnées seulementOn Bartlett's (1928) "Types of imagination"Known for his work on memory, Sir Frederick C. Bartlett also repeatedly wrote about imagination as part of his attempt to understand the dynamics of mind. Bartlett’s 1928 text explores autobiographical and literary material so as to identify three types of imagination (assimilative, creative, and constructive) on a continuum, depending on how much passive or intentional these are. This chapter discusses how three of Bartlett’s propositions have been taken on by research: processes of imagination, typology of people, and methodological choices. Finally, it is proposed that researchers pursue the exploration of variations of processes involved in imagination as proposed by Bartlett, as well as his original methodologies.

- PublicationMétadonnées seulementFantasy and imagination – from psychoanalysis to cultural psychology(Charlotte, NC: Information Age Publishing, 2017)
; ;Wagoner, Brady ;Bresco de Luna, IgnascioAwad, Sarah H.In his impressive historical chapter, Cornejo proposes to explore the major contributions to the study of fantasy before a new, modern psychology reduced it to mere reproductive imagination, losing much of the depth of the initial notion. Fantasy was forgotten by psychology, he argues, and let to other disciplines emerging at the 19th century, such as psychoanalysis and phenomenology. Against a psychology without soul, Cornejo invites cultural psychology to draw on insights of the past to bring about a theorization of imagination “with soul” in cultural psychology. In this chapter, I propose to complement Cornejo’s project by exploring, first, fields neighboring psychology in which fantasy kept some of its initial richness, especially psychoanalysis and anthropology. Second, I recall that some approaches in psychology did maintain a non-rationalistic imagination after the creation of a scientific psychology. Third, drawing on these points, I finally suggest one possible way to theorize fantasy or imagination within cultural psychology.

- PublicationMétadonnées seulementOn "Creative writers and day-dreaming" by Sigmund Freud (1908)Relatively early in his career, Freud wrote a short text on creativity, arguing that, far from being the privilege of a few artists, it was part of a process naturally developing as a continuation of children’s play. After presenting that text, this chapter discusses it in the light of past and recent developments, focusing on the idea that creativity is a process. British psychoanalysis has examined that idea, with an emphasis on what may hinder creativity and its variations. In Russia, however, Vygotsky’s work, without quoting them explicitly, has largely drawn on Freud’s intuitions, yet including them in a more socioculturally aware psychology. Three ideas need further theoretical and empirical investigation: the continuum between child and adult creativity; the nuances between daydream, imagination, and creativity; and the role of emotions and personal motives in any creative endeavor.
- PublicationAccès libreInteractive dynamics of imagination in a science classroom(2016-12-24)
;Hilppö, Jaakko ;Rajala, Antti ; ;Kumpulainen, KristiinaLipponen, LasseIn this paper, we introduce a conceptual framework for researching the dynamics of imagination in science classroom interactions. While educational interest in imagination has recently increased, prior research has not adequately accounted for how imagination is realized in and through classroom interactions, nor has it created a framework for its empirical investigation. Drawing on a theory of imagination situated in cultural psychology (Zittoun et al., 2013; Zittoun & Gillespie, 2016), we propose such a framework. We illustrate our framework with a telling case (Mitchell, 1984) of imagination from a Finnish primary science classroom community. Our illustration focuses on the dynamics of imagination as it unfolds in classroom interactions and how qualitatively distinct loops of imagination are formed. In specific, we show how the students’ meaning making expands in time and space and can become more refined and differentiated through loops of imagination and their dynamics. In all, our paper argues that imagination is a constitutive element of science learning. Our proposed conceptual framework provides potential avenues for further empirical research on the dynamics of imagination in science learning and teaching.
