CONFERENCE Dates Announced

  The third New Research on Gender in Political Psychology                     Conference   will be held from October 26-29th, 2017 at Saint Louis      University in St. Louis, MO.  


  The overarching purpose of the conference is to benefit the career         advancement of female scholars – with particular attention to women’s   multiple identities – through focused mentoring with regard to               research, teaching and service. To that end, our goals for the events      are to a) share and critique current research on gender and political      psychology in order to facilitate publication of participant research in      respected outlets, b) enable discussion and teaching of cutting edge      methods that can be applied to research on gender and political              psychology, c) create academic mentoring relationships between a      diverse group of advanced graduate students, assistant, associate,      and full professors, and d) facilitate the creation of a dense network of   scholars for future collaboration. The past conferences have been         particularly successful in helping participants produce high-quality          research in gender and political psychology, advancing to tenure track    and tenured positions, and creating a dense network. 


All interested participants must submit a one-page statement describing how they will help achieve the conference goals, foster collaborative and mentoring relationships, and how the conference will benefit them.

Additionally, if applicants wish to present a paper, a three-page summary of the paper’s theory, methods, and findings should be included. Scholars should anticipate that at the time of the conference the paper will be close to publication.
