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

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 Self-Threats and Self-Challenges, focusing on how people react to, cope with, and rise to the challenge of threats to their understanding of themselves. The preconference will feature the work of eminent scholars in 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.
