Conference: ISPP 2011
Affiliation: Harvard Graduate School of Education
Research Area: New theoretical and methodological developments

In early 2012 a Special issue of POLITICAL PSYCHOLOGY will be published on 'Where do we go from here?' edited by the Chair of this Roundtable.  Contributors, from all stages of their careers, have thought about how their particular area of interest is changing and how it is changing the field.  In anticipation of this, the Roundtable will be an opportunity for JUNIOR SCHOLARS in particular to explore their critical perspective on the current state of political psychology - theory, methods, epistemological assumptions, the purpose of our work.  The future lies with Junior Scholars; where do you want to take the field?  What skills and knowledge will YOUR students need?  What kind of experts, from what fields, do you want to bring into the ambience of 'political psychology' -and why?
