The Gender preconference brings together emerging and classic approaches to the social psychology of gender. Presentation formats include a keynote talk, symposia, data blitzes, and posters. Invited speakers will include early career rising stars through established scholars. This year’s symposia will focus on the psychology of feminism and feminist attitudes and sexual objectification among singly and multiply marginalized targets. Data blitz sessions will feature 5-minute talks that highlight innovative work on “hot topics” of interest. The program will also include a poster session that offers additional opportunities for presenters to share their gender research in a relaxed atmosphere. To celebrate and center the scholarship of rising gender scholars, we will again have a poster award session for student posters. We invite applications for data blitz talks and posters from students and academics at all stages of their careers.
