We will be accepting proposals for papers, symposia and conversation sessions in all areas relevant to theoretical and philosophical psychology. Highest priority will be given to sessions that are interactive. Some suggestions for interactive presentations:
- "Poster" style presentations (i.e., brief presentations highlighting major ideas) by each member of a panel who all address a theme (e.g., implicit cognitive functioning or attachment theory), followed by discussion (with the chair guiding discussion).
- A relatively brief presentation by a single author, followed by discussion.
- Presentations or symposia addressing targeted topics in which ample time is allotted for discussants’ comments and audience interaction.
- Pre-matched presenter-discussant sessions in which each of two or three focal papers addressing some theme would be commented on by a discussant designated in advance.
Note: Your submission implies a commitment to attend and present if your proposal is selected.
Please send proposals to the Midwinter Program Committee. For papers submit an abstract of 500 words. For symposia, submit a 300 word general abstract along with 300 word abstracts for each presenter. We welcome submissions from graduate students and early career psychologists, and encourage those who are new to theoretical and philosophical psychology to work with a faculty advisor or a mentor in preparing their presentations. Include the institutional affiliation and contact information for all presenters, including a phone number for the corresponding author.
