HUR, Domenico Uhng. History of Political Psychology: Heterogeneity and institutionalization. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.3, pp. 826-846. ISSN 1808-4281.

Political Psychology (PP) is a heterogeneous and plural field of knowledge, still in consolidation. The purpose of this article is to know the works that make a history about PP, to discuss the different narratives of the authors of Europe, United States and Latin America, and write an integration between them. As a method, we carry out a bibliographical review on articles, books and chapters which refer to the history of PP. We divided the discussion into four sections: precursors of PP, foundation of PP, institutionalization of PP and PP in Latin America. We see the constitution of a heterogeneous field, marked by regional. We perceive that historical narratives tends to privilege the works of their region and that American thought was not the protagonist for the creation of PP, but the European. In Latin America, a critical perspective and an implication with social change is assumed.

Keywords : history of psychology; Political Psychology; Latin America.
