SPSSI at the 2009 APA Convention: Call for Submissions

by Michaela Hynie, SPSSI 2009 APA Program Chair

Announcing SPSSI Program
for the 2009 American Psychological Association Convention
Toronto, August 6-9, 2009
"Partnering on Social Issues for Social Change"

SPSSI welcomes submissions for symposia, posters, workshops, and discussion sessions on this year's convention theme, as well as on the broad concerns of the division. Submissions will be anonymously reviewed.

This year's theme focuses on partnering on research for social change. You are invited to define partnering in diverse ways -- between researchers and communities, across (sub)disciplines, across cultures, and with activists, and practitioners. We therefore encourage panels comprising a range of partners, such as academics from other disciplines (e.g., geography, architecture), community members, activists, and policy makers.

Deadline:  December 1, 2008, directly to the APA website

Please note that, according to APA guidelines, only APA members may be chairpersons of sessions.
