Prisen ble tildelt Brady Wagoner ved Institutt for psykologi for hans langvarige og fremragende innsats innen forskning og undervisning.

Brady Wagoner will receive the prestigious Humboldt Research Award in recognition of outstanding lifetime achievements in research and teaching.
The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation selects internationally renowned scientists and scholars from all disciplines for the award, “whose fundamental discoveries, new theories, or insights have had a significant impact on their own discipline; recipients are expected to continue producing cutting-edge achievements in the future.” Prof. Wagoner has been especially recognized for his contributions to cultural psychology, memory studies, the history of psychology and the development of dynamic process methodologies.
The award will be officially conferred March 24-27 2022 in Bamberg, Germany. Award winners are invited to carry out research projects of their own choice in cooperation with specialist colleagues in Germany, and to join the Humboldt network of leading researchers from around the world. The award comes with a grant of 60,000 euros to conduct research, and with excellent opportunities for further sponsorship.
Prof. Wagoner will collaborate with Prof. Dr. Thomas Stodulka, Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology at Freie Universität Berlin, to develop novel synergies between cultural psychology and psychological anthropology, particularly in connection with emotions and methodology. Together with Prof. Dr. Meike Watzlawik at Sigmund Freud Universität Berlin, they will also analyze data on people’s collective symbolic coping with the COVID-19 pandemic, including vaccination decision-making, compliance with restrictions, trust in authorities, information seeking and conspiracy theories.
Finally, Prof. Wagoner will visit Prof. Dr. Astrid Erll at the Frankfurt Memory Studies Platform, Goethe Universität; Prof. Dr. Jürgen Straub at the Köhler Center for Cultural Psychology and Historical Anthropology, Ruhr Universität Bochum; and the Children and Nature working group at Leipzig Universität.
Professor Wagoner has published 17 books and over 100 articles and book chapters in just the last decade. These works span a wide range of topics but are centered on exploring the relationships between culture, mind and memory as unfolding processes, and developing novel methods to study them as such. His most important books include The Constructive Mind: Bartlett’s Psychology in Reconstruction (Cambridge University Press, 2017), Handbook of Culture and Memory (Oxford University Press, 2018), Remembering as Cultural Process with Ignacio Bresco and S.H. Awad (Springer, 2019) and Culture as Process: A tribute to Jaan Valsiner with B. Christensen and C. Demuth (Springer, 2021). He has previously won a number of significant academic awards, including the Sigmund Koch Award (2018) and Early Career Award (2017), both from the American Psychological Association, and has held visiting fellowships in Brazil, Chile, France, Spain and the Netherlands.
