2020 SPSP New Orleans Convention

Home > Preconferences > Sexuality
Location: Room TBD  |  8:00 AM - 4:30 PM

The theme of the seventh annual SPSP Sexuality Preconference is “Sex on the Margins.” A diverse group of scholars will present cutting-edge work focused on sexual practices, movements, and identities that are often overlooked or are made peripheral to mainstream research. This pre-conference is designed to consider the numerous ways that the fields of sexuality and psychology can be enhanced when we recognize that ‘sex on the margins’ is a valid space for creating knowledge and is central to advancing both fields. This year’s pre-conference will feature three keynote talks, as well as a one-hour symposium in which three scholars will present a set of shorter talks on several important and understudied sexuality issues. There will also be a data blitz, in which 10-12 attendees will describe their latest findings in brief, as well as a sexuality poster session. See submission details below!
