Leading psychologists and political scientists will discuss current research on topics aimed at furthering the understanding of political behavior. Topics will include political extremism, the role of genetics in politics, social categorization, intergroup contact and prejudice, and morality. In addition, we will host a graduate student talk, data blitz, poster session, and paper-swap. Our objectives are to break down boundaries between psychology and political science, and promote the next generation of political psychologists.
