The book was co-edited by Ken Abrams of Carleton College and Dana Gross of St. Olaf College, and resulted from an Associated Colleges of the Midwest Faculty Career Enhancement psychology conference in which all three faculty members participated. Enns also contributed a chapter about cultural psychology in Japan and East Asia.

Cornell faculty members Alice Ganzel, associate professor of psychology, and Judith Siebert, lecturer in anthropology and Latin American studies, collaborated on a chapter about environmental psychology in Costa Rica.

According to the APA, the book “offers teachers of psychology what they need most to internationalize the undergraduate curriculum: clear approaches to studying psychology across cultures, practical ideas they can use in the classroom, resources that connect students to the world beyond their home campus, and expert advice on how to develop and administer study abroad programs.”

Born and raised in Japan, Enns has had a lifelong interest in intercultural learning. She is a contributor to the ethnic studies as well as the gender, sexuality, and women’s studies programs at Cornell.

She has written approximately 60 articles and chapters that focus primarily on the topics of gender, pedagogy, and feminist theory and psychotherapy. She is the author of “Feminist Theories and Psychotherapies” (2004) and co-editor of “Teaching and Social Justice” (2005), “The Oxford Handbook of Feminist Multicultural Counseling Psychology” (2013), and “Psychological Practice With Women: Guidelines, Diversity, Empowerment.”

She is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association and has received national awards for her work related to women and gender.
