Join us in beautiful Milazzo, Sicily! We will host a EASP Meeting on „Identity fragility: Psychological antecedents and consequences of living in permanent crisis and political instability“.
The 2024 EASP meeting aims to bring together research regarding the psychological antecedents and consequences of fragile identities. By fragile identities we mean collective group memberships that are likely to emerge as a response to experiencing adverse events including forced displacement, wars (e.g., in Syria and Ukraine), atrocities and hate crimes against minorities on the one hand, and a response to a threat of change in the lifestyle and values of majority populations (i.e., White fragility) on the other. Specifically, we are interested in inviting researchers who examine how fragile identities come about as a result of collective experiences, collective memory and current political processes, as well as researchers who work on its influence on intergroup relations, both in the area of intergroup conflict and hostility, and in the area of solidarity, moral identity, reconciliation and collective action participation. The
meeting will focus on the conditions of identity fragility among advantaged and disadvantaged groups, the topics of social inclusion and exclusion, allyship, solidarity, protection of human rights, support, and
opposition to multiculturalism as they are triggered by historical experiences and contemporary atrocities in different geopolitical contexts within and beyond the European continent.
Deadline for abstracts is 14th of October. Application form: https://docs.google.com/…/1FAIpQLScwIrrCSI…/viewform…
