Call for Book Chapter Proposals: Intergenerational Responsibility in the 21st Century

Vernon Press, a small independent publisher committed to excellence in scholarship, invites chapter proposals for a forthcoming collected volume on ‘Intergenerational Responsibility in the 21st Century’ edited by Julia M. Puaschunder (Harvard University and The New School Department of Economics). The main theme is intergenerational equity – the fairness to provide an at least as favorable standard of living as experienced today – and contemporary trends in intergenerational responsibility in the public and private sectors. We welcome contributions to the study of intergenerational equity from across the social sciences, including behavioral sciences, cultural studies, economics, humanities, science and technology, and international development. Contributions offering novel perspectives on intergenerational leadership, documenting alternative approaches and methods for advanced studies or of direct relevance to contemporary debates and implications for public policy are particularly encouraged.

EASP Small Group Meeting on New directions in the social psychology of solidarity

Organizers: John Drury, Roberto González, Nick Hopkins, Clifford Stevenson and Hanna Zagefka
May 10-11, 2016, Brighton, UK

Solidarity is fundamental in informal social interaction, social organization, social institutions and social change. But while research has shown the importance of forms of solidarity across a range of topics, solidarity itself has rarely been a focus. The aim of this meeting is to discuss and analyse the different usages of ‘solidarity’ in contemporary social psychology and by doing so achieve some conceptual clarification and research agenda-setting.

An expected outcome of the meeting will be the specification of research questions which would serve to delineate the necessary social psychological conditions and elements that are implied when we talk of ‘solidarity’.
