Location: TBA | Thursday, February 7 | 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
Designed for gender researchers, this preconference brings together emerging and classic approaches to understanding the social psychology of gender. Researchers will address a range of evidence and frameworks to understand gender. Symposia will focus on classic and contemporary topics (e.g., intersectionality, gender identity), and a data blitz session will highlight innovative work.
