This symposium brings together people who are actively involved in research in social psychology or related disciplines. 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 twenty first gathering in Brisbane. This year the symposium is again sponsored by the Centre for Research in Social Psychology. Each year we aim to gather a cross-section of emerging and established researchers not just from SE Queensland but also interstate and overseas.
