*Submissions close on December 12 at 11:59 p.m.
The theme of our mini-conference is how individuals thrive and grow in stressful contexts through their relationships. Submissions will be accepted for posters, data blitzes, individual oral presentations, and symposiums that focus broadly on this topic of resilience and relationships. Additionally, we will facilitate a couple of sessions for collaborative working groups to brainstorm ideas for interdisciplinary studies and/or grant proposals. There will be a new scholars workshop (topic to be determined) during the first day on Thursday, May 18th open to all graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. We also have three terrific keynote speakers lined up - this year’s Early Career Award winner (Amie Gordon), a local, mixed race Indigenous scholar and activist who will share about their lived experiences with resilience (Alycia de Mesa), and a speaker who will focus on stress and coping in young adult and older couples (Silvia Donato). Finally, we are planning to make the most of our beautiful surrounds for our opening and closing receptions (locations to be announced shortly), and we will be organizing a couple of optional day tours on Sunday, May 21st in Sedona.
