RIBEIRO, Marina Porto  and  FLEITH, Denise de Souza. Creativity and multiculturalism: literature review. Temas psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.26, n.2, pp. 943-956. ISSN 1413-389X.

This study examined journals articles, published from 2010 to 2015, about the relationship between multiculturalism and creativity. A literature search was conducted in the databases Capes, PsycNET and SciELO. Thirty articles that fit within pre-established inclusion criteria were selected. The articles were analyzed according to the categories: journal, country of production, target, sample, and instruments. There was an increase in the number of publications concerning this theme in the last years. Researchers from regions with high migratory flow, such as United States, Europe and Asia, seemed more interested in the matter. There was no publication neither from Brazil nor Latin America. The majority of the studies selected were empirical, quantitative, and used adult samples. The reviewed studies indicated a relationship between creativity and multiculturalism, mediated by psychological mechanisms and environmental conditions.

Keywords : Creativity; multiculturalism; biculturalism.
