Religion and spirituality permeate many aspects of our society as well as of many people's lives. This pre-conference will bring together young and established investigators, as well as researchers engaging in interdisciplinary work, to discuss cutting-edge research at the interface of social-personality psychology and the psychology of religion/spirituality. We welcome all empirical-based psychological approaches to studying religion and spirituality. The program will consist of invited research presentations, two discussion panels on pressing issues (replication and cross-cultural work), two data blitzes (one standard and one specifically for yet-to-be-published data), a speed mentoring session, and a research poster session focused on post-doctoral, graduate, and undergraduate student research. As represented in this year’s program, the study of the psychology of religion is more interdisciplinary than ever, integrating theory and research from personality and social psychology with those of politics, law, and economics/management, and deeply engages with the need for sound and diverse science.
We are grateful that this Preconference was supported, in part, by a generous donation from The John Templeton Foundation.
