ASSOCIATION OF WOMEN IN PSYCHOLOGY CONFERENCE 2018
Theme: STILL I RISE: Resistance, Resilience and Resolve in Feminism
According to Roman mythology, Diana was the goddess of the hunt, the moon, and nature. She was known for her ability to talk to and control animals. She is a symbol of strength for women in a time where there is a great need for resistance, resilience, and resolve. This image of Diana coupled with words from Maya Angelou come together to guide our annual meeting focusing on inter-sectionality, race, class, gender, and sexuality. The Association for Women in Psychology Conference is being held at the Sonesta Hotel in Centre City, Philadelphia from March 8-11, 2018. Pre-Conference workshops will be held on Thursday, March 8th.
CONFERENCE THEME DESCRIPTION
The focus of this year’s conference is resistance and resilience in these uncertain times. We as feminists can come together, from different racial, gender, and sexuality backgrounds, to make a difference in today’s world. Throughout the conference, we will focus on building each other up and battling the various injustices of our current social and political environment. We recognize that these times have been divisive and hope to provide an environment where we can engage in a positive mutual exchange of ideas and support our differences -while also celebrating that which brings us together. We are welcoming of any and all proposals, both those that fit within our theme as well as those relevant to feminist psychology more broadly. Proposals that focus on research, pedagogy and career development, mentoring, and feminist identity development are welcome. Related to this year’s theme, we also especially welcome proposals focused on advocacy, activism, and community-engaged work. We hope to capitalize on action, energy, and movement within the feminist community. We also welcome workshops and presentations that will assist clinicians to enhance our impact in the mental health community.
DEADLINE EXTENDED: We are accepting proposals for AWP 2018 in Philadelphia now through October 31st!
