A preconference on self and identity has been a fixture of the SPSP conferences for many years. This year's preconference continued the tradition by featuring an exciting and eclectic lineup of contributors. This year's conference featured research focusing on the Exploring Identity through Morality, Politics, and Diversity, and the Inaccurate Self. In addition, the preconference featured invited addresses by the Early Career and Lifetime Career Award winners, as well as the Best Paper award from the International Society for Self and Identity’s official journal, Self and Identity.
This year's speakers include:
Kevin Binning, University of Pittsburgh
Stephen Garcia, University of Michigan
Corey Guenther, Creighton University
Andrew Christy, Texas A&M University
Kimberly Rios, Ohio University
William von Hippel, University of Queensland
Distinguished Lifetime Career Award winner (David Dunning)
Outstanding Early Career Award winner (Emily Balcetis)

With a diverse panel of speakers reflecting the depth and breadth of the field, the 2017 preconference was a testament to the vitality of current self and identity research. We look forward to seeing you next year in Atlanta, Georgia!
