Academic conference: Motivation in Social Context
From June 30 to July 2 the international academic conference Motivation in Social Context: Theory and Practice will be held in Kraków. It has been co-organized by the Jagiellonian University (Department of Social Psychology at the Institute of Psychology) and the University of Gdańsk, in collaboration with the Society for the Study of Motivation.
As the title suggests, the conference will address social motivational processes, focusing on issues of both theoretical and practical concern. The issues discussed at the conference pertain to broadly understood social motivation, including – but not limited to – topics such as social perception and interaction, self-regulation, aggression, pro-social behavior, motivation in sport, gender relations and sexuality. An overarching purpose will be to foster the exchange of relevant ideas and scientific information, potentially leading to collaborative research endeavors.
The conference speakers will include: Nicola Baumann (Universität Trier), Jan Blecharz (University School of Physical Education in Krakow), Jaana Juvonen (UCLA), Arie W. Kruglanski (University of Maryland), Richard Sorrentino (University of Western Ontario), Gershon Tenenbaum (Florida State University), Theresa Vescio (Pennsylvania State University), Bernard Weiner (UCLA), and Rex Wright (University of North Texas – UNT).
