Joint SPSSI-EASP Small Group Conference
Proactive Behavior across Group Boundaries:
November 30th – December 2nd 2012, Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, NY
Our conference objective is to inspire and advance research to help fill this gap. It will enhance our understanding of positive intergroup processes by bringing together researchers who investigate them from a variety of emerging perspectives. What leads people to seek and maintain positive interactions with outgroup members? What are the contributions to positive intergroup relations from different levels of analysis? What features of the ingroup, the outgroup, and the intergroup relationship foster or hinder positive intergroup interactions? We will pay special attention to the interplay of individual-level and group-level factors.
The meeting will take place November 30th to December 2nd 2012 at Stony Brook University. We will include up to 30 participants. About half will be from Europe and about half will be junior faculty or postgraduates. Participation fees will be offset by funding.
