ISPP Summer Academy Accepting Applications Until April 1

In July 2011, ISPP will launch the inaugural International Society of Political Psychology – Summer Academy (ISPP – SA) which will occur from July 6th till 8th in Istanbul, Turkey, just prior to the 2011 annual meeting. The ISPP – SA is designed as a three-day workshop, to be held each year immediately prior to the ISPP annual meeting, and aims to train interested faculty and students in both foundational and cutting edge research in the area of political psychology. The Summer Academy’s central objective is to spread interest and promote training in political psychology around the world. The Summer Academy will occur in conjunction with the ISPP International conference, providing its fellows a unique opportunity to engage with a truly international mix of participants.

ISPP invites applications for the ISPP – SA program from Turkish and international scholars interested in learning more about political psychology. The three-day Summer Academy will hold morning and afternoon seminars and break-out discussion sessions, and will include a number of social events for instructors and fellows. The Summer Academy will address a variety of theoretical issues and key methodological approaches to political psychology; likely topics include Foreign Policy Decision Making, Social Identity, Power and Conformity, Intergroup Violence and Conflict, Multiculturalism and Integration, Social Hierarchies, Terrorism, Media Impact and Political Communication Effects. Instructors will include internationally prominent political psychologists from the fields of psychology and political science. The Summer Academy fellows will be expected to attend the ISPP annual meeting in Istanbul, from July 9th till 12th, which will include several special events and sessions for Summer Academy fellows.

The deadline for applications is April 1, 2011. For more information about the program please contact Tereza Capelos, ISPP – SA Director,
