International Society of Political Psychology

ISPP Summer Academy

2-4 July 2018 in San Antonio, Texas (USA)

The inaugural International Society of Political Psychology – Summer Academy was launched with great success in 2011, just prior to the annual meeting in Istanbul, Turkey. We will be accepting applications for the 8th annual ISPP-SA, to be held in conjunction with the 2018 Annual Meeting in San Antonio, Texas (USA) beginning in early 2018. Please check back on this page for application information.

The ISPP Summer Academy is designed as a three-day workshop, to be held each year immediately prior to the ISPP annual meeting, and aims to train interested faculty and students in both foundational and cutting-edge research in the area of political psychology. The Summer Academy’s central objective is to spread interest and promote training in political psychology around the world. Holding the Summer Academy in conjunction with the ISPP conference provides its fellows a unique opportunity to engage with a truly international mix of participants. Summer Academy Fellows receive membership in ISPP for one year, and their registration fee for the conference is waived.

The 2018 Summer Academy pricing, which INCLUDES the ISPP Annual Meeting that follows the Summer Academy and a 12-month membership in ISPP, will be available late January 2018.
