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.
