PSI was launched for one reason—to connect researchers from different fields who share a common interest in power, status, and influence. These three topics have long captured the attention of academic scholars and continue to inspire empirical work across many disciplines (e.g., psychology, sociology, and biology). Much of this work examines the cognitive and social psychology of power and status dynamics present in diverse populations, ranging from investment bankers to Capuchin monkeys. Taken together, the insights drawn from this body of research are fundamental and its implications are far-reaching.
The European Association of Social Psychology will host a small group meeting to review twenty years of empirical research on dehumanisation and shape the future of the field. The meeting will address dehumanisation and objectification research since the rise of the MeToo movement, dehumanising social media rhetoric associated with increased nationalism, and populist opinions against immigration. The meeting will be held on Thursday, September 10th, 2020 through Saturday, September 12th, 2020, in Tenerife, Spain (submissions accepted until July 15th, 2020). The meeting is open to EASP members and non-members.
