The tentative theme of the 2019 Advances in Cultural Psychology preconference is "Cultural psychology in the real world."  Besides 4-5 presentations by experts in the field, the preconference will also include a data blitz and poster sessions which will allow advanced graduate students and post-docs to present their current research, and roundtable discussions will focus on more specific topics of interest to students and faculty.

Outstanding Contribution to Cultural Psychology Award:

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 cultures of honor, emotion, multiculturalism, etc.; scholars who have contributed to the teaching of cultural psychology).

Nomination materials must include:

  1. A letter of recommendation detailing how the nominee’s (or nominees’) work fits the award criteria
  2. The nominee’s (or nominees’) current vita in electronic format

These materials should be sent in one email to Jeanne Tsai (jeanne.tsai@stanford.edu) by October 1, 2018. Awardees will be expected to give an award talk at the upcoming Cultural Psychology Pre-conference of the SPSP Convention in Portland, Oregon (Feb 7-9, 2019).
