Overview

The Political Psychology preconference brings together researchers to discuss topics in political cognition, ideology, and behavior. The preconference aims to facilitate the dissemination of cutting-edge research in political psychology, honor the leaders of the field and promote the next generation of political psychologists. Back by popular demand, this year’s preconference will again feature themed “mini-symposia,” covering the following topics:

  • Harnessing Historical Awareness in Political Psychology
  • Political Psychological Models of Susceptibility to Misinformation
  • Political Psychology of the Climate Crisis
  • Political Psychology of Inequality

Each mini-symposia will include an extended discussion session with the audience. 

Confirmed speakers for our pre-conference include: Phia Salter, Johanna Vollhardt, Bertram Gawronski, Gordon Pennycook, Demis Glasford, Nathaniel Geiger, and Matthew Goldberg. We will be announcing many more speakers in the coming weeks. 

Submissions related to the four covered themes are encouraged. However, all political psychological work is highly regarded and welcome as submissions, as is the case every year.
