The morning session commences at 9am and runs until 12.20pm when we break for lunch. The afternoon session commences at 1.50pm and finishes at 5pm. There will be breaks during each session in which refreshments will be provided. In the evening, there will be the traditional symposium party (with food, nibbles, wine and other drinks provided) at Eric Vanman's house. Directions will be provided at the event. Please arrive any time after 5.00pm.
This symposium brings together people who are actively involved in research in the areas of social identity, group processes and intergroup relations. It is a forum for the exchange of ideas, the discussion of theoretical and conceptual issues, presentation of current research, and the establishment and strengthening of formal research connections in this field. There are 8 papers acting as foci for discussion, chosen to reflect the diversity and breadth of the research.
Inaugurated in 1992, this is the seventeenth gathering in Brisbane. This year the symposium is again sponsored by the Centre for Research on Group Processes. Each year we aim to gather a cross-section of emerging and established researchers not just from SE Queensland but also interstate and overseas. This year, we particularly welcome our guests from overseas (Dan Christie and Bill Swann) and interstate (Tom Denson and Michael Platow) who travelled great distances to attend.
