After a delay due to the pandemic, we are happy to announce that we have rescheduled the EASP Meeting "20 years of Dehumanisation: Confronting Social Discourses that treat People like Non-Human Beings".
Twenty years since the first empirical papers on dehumanisation were published, we return to the spiritual home of dehumanisation research for a meeting Thursday, 28 April, 2022 through Saturday, 30 April, 2022, in Tenerife, Spain. This meeting will address dehumanisation and objectification research since the MeToo movement, dehumanising social media rhetoric associated with increased nationalism, and the rise of populist opinions against immigration. The meeting is open to EASP members and non-members. Registration instructions for the meeting can be found through the meeting webpage. Everyone interested in research related to dehumanisation or objectification is welcome and encouraged to register!
In addition to established researchers presenting their data, several postdocs / advanced grad students will be selected to give either 20 minute workshop presentations, or 5 minute talks as part of a data blitz. Advanced graduate students and postdocs who study any aspect of dehumanisation or objectification can apply to give a blitz talk by completing the online submission form on the meeting webpage.
Submissions will be accepted until 31 October, 2021 at 23.59 GMT. Applicants selected to give longer or data-blitz talks will be notified in late-November. Any program questions can be directed to the meeting organisers.
We look forward to see you in Tenerife!
