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 preconference 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 preconference 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!
Confirmed Keynote Speakers
We invite proposals for 1) individual talks (15-20 minute talks); 2) data blitz talks (5 minutes, 5 presentation slides); and 3) posters. Persons at any career stage are eligible to submit proposals for all categories; however, we are especially keen to support the work of early career scholars. Proposals that relate to this year’s theme are encouraged; however, submissions on any sexuality-related topic will be considered.
If you would like to present at the Sexuality Preconference, please submit your proposal via the submission portal below. You will be asked to provide the title, author information, presentation preferences, a 400-character brief description, and a 1200-character abstract. The portal is open through November 15, 2019. Please note that all data must be collected prior to submission for empirical presentations.
