This pre-conference highlights work from nearly every area of social psychology, including moral cognition, the role of emotion in moral judgment, the ways in which justice or the lack thereof is manifest in intergroup relations, ethical decision-making, etc. We also welcome perspectives from related areas, such as cognitive and developmental psychology, philosophy, and law. We have an exciting line-up of invited speakers, and scholars at all career stages are welcome to submit abstracts for consideration as a poster or microtalk.
