2020 SPSP New Orleans Convention

Location: Room TBD  |  8:00 AM - 4:30 PM

Designed for gender researchers, the Gender Preconference brings together emerging and classic approaches to the social psychology of gender. Symposia will consist of several 20-minute talks that focus on relevant topics in the area of gender (e.g., intersectionality, gender identity, relationships, and sexism), as well methodological issues of importance to gender researchers (e.g., inclusiveness of diverse samples, best practices in terminology). As always, data blitz sessions will feature 5-minute talks that highlight innovative work on “hot topics” of interest. New to the Gender Preconference this year are: (1) a panel discussion on “Rethinking the Gender Binary” in our theories and research featuring leading experts on the topic, and (2) a poster session that offers additional opportunities for presenters to share their gender research in a relaxed atmosphere. We invite applications for data blitz talks and posters from advanced undergraduate and graduate students, as well as academics at all stages of their careers.
