Social Psychology Section Annual Conference

Keele Hall, 28-30 August 2018

*** New 3 Day event Format ***

The BPS Social Psychology Section is hosting a three-day conference inviting social psychologists to convene to reflect upon the capacity of our discipline to help explain the dynamics underlying some of the challenges faced by modern society. ‘Addressing the Crisis’ will have a series of symposia, keynote speakers and poster sessions involving established social psychologists and early career researchers. Each symposium will include several short presentations followed by substantive discussion invited from the floor, facilitated by a discussant. There will be keynotes from Professor Alex Haslam, Professor Rupert Brown and Dr Aarti Iyer.
