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

The political psychology preconference brings together researchers to discuss topics in political cognition and behavior. The aims of the preconference are to facilitate the dissemination of cutting-edge research in political psychology, to honor the leaders of the field, and to promote the next generation of political psychologists. This year’s preconference will feature the following themed “mini-symposia”: Psychological Insights for the 2020 elections, Social Media and Political Psychology, and Evolutionary Political Psychology. Additionally, we will host a symposium entitled “Challenging Dominant Paradigms” in which we will feature three speakers who have conducted research that has “gone against the grain” to challenge widely accepted paradigms in political psychology. This symposium will include an extended discussion session with the audience. In addition to faculty speakers, we host a graduate student talk, data blitz, poster session, and paper-swap.

Please submit your presentation proposal below. Submissions will be accepted until November 15 after which the review process will begin.
