The application deadline for the LGBTQI Studies Preconference that will take place prior to the EASP 2020 conference has been extended to 17th February 2020 (final extension). For submissions please go to the preconference website

Please join us for the LGBTQI Studies Preconference, which is dedicated to the study of sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and sex characteristics, and provides a forum for social psychologists doing research on these topics to present new findings, discuss future directions, and consolidate and extend their scholarly networks. The preconference follows up on last summer's very successful RKTS workshop "Building an LGBT European Social Psychology" that took place in Lisbon, and aims to build on and extend the connections that were forged there in order to create a European network of LGBTQI researchers.

The preconference will take place on June 30th, 2020 preceding the General Meeting of the European Association of Social Psychology (EASP) in Krakow, Poland. The day will feature a set of talks by social psychologists in various stages of their careers, as well as representatives of local LGBTQI organizations. We will also have data blitz and poster sessions, a catered lunch with opportunity for discussion in smaller groups, and plenary discussions (see the preliminary program). Participants additionally are invited to share their (in-progress) papers through a Digital Paper Swap.

Check out the preconference website for a more detailed program, and for information on abstract submission and registration. For further inquiries, contact us at
