This year's preconference, "Conflict, Polarization, and Cooperation: Cultural Origins and Solutions," focuses on how cultural psychology can help us understand the increased conflict and polarization in today's world, as well as ways to reduce conflict/polarization and increase cooperation across cultural and political lines. We will start the morning with a data blitz and our first session on interventions to bridge cultural divides. After a poster session and lunch, afternoon sessions will focus on conflict/polarization and cooperation, and a round table on conflict, polarization and cooperation to allow for dialogue among attendees. We will conclude with an award ceremony recognizing the accomplishments of leading cultural psychologists.
We look forward to seeing you in New Orleans!! Please feel free to contact us if you have any further questions.
The Outstanding Contribution to Cultural Psychology Award was established to recognize a scholar (or group of scholars) whose work has added substantially to the body of knowledge in cultural psychology—and related fields examining the intersection of cultural and psychological processes—and whose sustained contributions in research, teaching, and/or service have significantly advanced the field.
Individuals may self-nominate or be nominated by others. In addition to the typical nominations of a single individual or collaborative team, we also encourage nominations that revolve around specific themes or topics that could be awarded at the same time to multiple investigators, even if they have not collaborated with each other (e.g., scholars working on multiculturalism, emotion, religion, cultural change, social class, etc.; scholars who have contributed to the teaching of cultural psychology).
Nomination materials must include:
These materials should be sent in one email to Jeanne Tsai (firstname.lastname@example.org) by October 1, 2019. Awardees will be expected to give an award talk at the upcoming Cultural Psychology preconference of the SPSP Convention in New Orleans.
