We are delighted to announce the call for papers for the 2010 BPS Social Psychology Section Conference to be held in the City of Winchester, United Kingdom, from the 7th to the 9th September 2010. A postgraduate workshop will be held on the 6th and 7th September 2010
The BPS Social Psychology Section annual conference aims to showcase the best of social psychological research occurring across the United Kingdom and internationally as well as to stimulate debate within and between traditions. We welcome the submission of empirical and theoretical papers from across the full spectrum of social psychology as well as those which critically engage and reflect upon research paradigms and methods. We would particularly encourage contributions which detail empirical approaches to pressing social issues and demonstrate the utility and impact of social psychology in the social world.
The ancient capital of England and seat of King Alfred the Great, Winchester is a truly historic city. Fifty five minutes from London by train, it has an impressive range of visitor attractions. The Cathedral is unmissable, boasting the longest mediaeval nave in Europe, the 12th century Winchester Bible, and the tombs of all the early kings of England as well as that of Jane Austen, whose final weeks were spent in the city. Winchester College, the first English public school, can be visited by guided tour and is worth seeing for its atmospheric gothic chapel alone. A favourite tourist spot is the Great Hall, the only surviving remnant of the 700-year old Winchester Castle, where you can see King Arthur's round table (at least the version made for Edward I).
Away from the historic monuments, Winchester offers attractive green spaces
such as St Giles' Hill, from which you can take in a panorama of the historic
city centre, and the water meadows alongside the River Itchen that inspired
Keats's 'Ode to Autumn'. In addition, the city offers a wealth of small shops,
from select boutiques to craft shops, bars and cafés. For further information
