2019 Self and Identity Preconference at SPSP

A fixture of the SPSP conference for many years, the Self and Identity Preconference provides a forum for understanding the nexus between the individual and collective aspects of the self. This year’s preconference had a special focus on Negotiating Self and Identity in a Diverse World, including a focus on intergroup interactions, identity threat, and understanding the self across diverse contexts. The preconference featured the work of pre-eminent scholars studying these areas, including addresses from Early Career and Lifetime Career Award winners and a Best Paper Award from the International Society for Self and Identity’s official journal, Self and Identity. The preconference also featured a poster session, data blitz, and a mentoring and networking lunch. With a diverse panel of speakers discussing timely issues of social importance, the preconference showcased the relevance and vitality of current self and identity research.
