A fixture of the SPSP conference for many years, the Self and Identity Preconference provides a forum for understanding the nexus between the individual and collective aspects of the self. This year’s preconference has a special focus on The Role of Self and Identity in Contemporary Social Problems, including problems related to prejudice, partisanship, and inequality. The preconference will feature the work of pre-eminent scholars studying these areas, including addresses from Early Career and Lifetime Career Award winners and a Best Paper Award from the International Society for Self and Identity’s official journal, Self and Identity. The preconference will also feature a poster session, data blitz, and a mentoring and networking lunch. With a diverse panel of speakers discussing timely issues of social importance, organizers hope to showcase the relevance and vitality of current self and identity research.
To be Announced.
