Welcome to the Self & Identity's SPSP 2021 Preconference! 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. The preconference this year has a special focus on "Resilience and Diversity," highlighting approaches to coping and research focusing on underrepresented groups. We invite researchers and practitioners, whether newcomers or established, to help us explore the latest diversity science findings as it relates to one's identity and social belonging.
The preconference will feature the work of eminent scholars in 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 will also feature a poster session, data blitz, and virtual mentoring and networking lunch. With a diverse panel of speakers discussing timely issues of social importance, the preconference will showcase the relevance and vitality of current self and identity research.
This year's speakers include:
Call for submissions! We strongly encourage individuals with exciting findings from all areas of self and identity research to apply, especially those with work relating to Resilience and Diversity!
