2017 APA CONVENTION AND DIVISION 24 PRESIDENTIAL THEME

Dear Division 24 members and friends,

 

APA has released its Call for Proposals for the 2017 convention (http://www.apa.org/convention/). As your 2017 Program Chair, I encourage your active participation at the conference, which will take place in Washington, DC from August 3-6, 2017.

  

HERE’S WHAT’S EXCITING NOW:

 

2017 Presidential Theme

As Division 24 President, Thomas Teo has chosen the theme of “Theorizing as Rebellion” (“What Can We Know? What Should We Do? What May We Hope?” and Beyond) and proposes a series of questions for our collective theoretical consideration in 2017. We encourage you to address any selection of these issues in your individual submissions so that we can work through them collectively and break new theoretical horizons! Individual submissions are due December 1st, 2016.

 

Kant famously posed in his Critique of Pure Reason three questions: “What Can I Know? What Should I Do? What May I Hope?” Although these questions have relevance in psychology as they pertain to epistemology, ethics, and faith in the discipline and profession, they also require revisions. An important turn in theorizing relates to the social dimensions of ontology, epistemology, ethics, and aesthetics, because the monological, decontextualized individual does not exist. Thus, the questions themselves need to be updated and the “I” is changed to “We.” In addition, although these questions are fundamental but rarely addressed in psychology, we need to include issues that reflect our present and its concerns with environmental and social justice. These questions and issues are not at the forefront of the discipline and profession, and posing them makes theorizing rebellious. But rebellion goes further and challenges the status quo as well as those traditions that have supported a new nihilism that assumes that we collectively can no longer change unjust structures, institutions, and practices. Rebellion in this second meaning is more radical and questions the status-quo supporting function of many psychologies themselves. Accordingly, we welcome topics that fall within a more traditional philosophical division concerning the ontological, epistemological, ethical, and aesthetic shortcomings of psychology, and its solutions, but also topics that veer into radical theorizing as they relate to marginalized groups, topics, or events, with a critical lens in mind.

 In short, we welcome symposia, papers, and posters that extend our understanding of ontology, epistemology, ethics, and aesthetics in psychology, as well as consider the nexus of these areas as expressed in concepts such as onto-epistemology, epistemic justice, or ethical aesthetics. 

 

Should you have any questions, please contact me directly at bdellis@uchicago.edu.

 

Warm regards,

Basia

SOME NOTES ON THIS YEAR'S MIDWINTER GATHERING

by Mark Freeman, Former President, Division 24

 

Division 24’s Midwinter meeting was held in Salt Lake City, Utah, from March 11–13, and it proved to be another excellent and memorable one. Serving as our Planning Committee Co-Chairs were Gregg Henriques and Brady Wiggins. Thanks also go to Tyler Lefevor, Mary Beth Morrissey, and Steve Yanchar, all of whom made important contributions to planning this year’s conference. Finally, I want to express my appreciation to Snjezana Huerta and Cacky Mellor, who are Co-Chairs of the Division’s Student Committee and who worked hard to shape this year’s program. This year’s meeting was organized around the theme of “Psychology’s Moral Vision,” which had been selected by the late Steve Harrist, who was to have served as President of the Division this year, and Josh Clegg, this year’s Program Chair for the APA meeting in Denver. Alongside the wide variety of events supporting this theme as well as some special events (e.g., a Student/Early Career Luncheon devoted to “Theoretical Psychology 101,” a Teaching Luncheon and Workshop run by Jeff Reber, and a plenary book session devoted to Blaine Fowers’ new book The Evolution of Ethics: Human Sociality and the Emergence of Ethical Mindedness), a special Presidential Session was held the evening of March 11 titled “Steve Harrist’s Legacy: What is Psychology’s Moral Vision?” I do not know that those involved—Blaine Fowers, Frank Richardson, Brent Slife, and myself—arrived at a definitive answer to the question. But we did do our best to recall Steve’s life and work and to share some reflections about who he was, what the Division meant to him, and what he meant to the Division. I encourage all of us to do what we can to honor and preserve Steve Harrist’s memory. He was a smart, thoughtful, kind person whose commitments, in both word and deed—especially his commitments to justice and service—were vitally important to the Division’s work. Under the leadership of Thomas Teo, who on January 1, 2016 took over as President of the Division, more will be done in Denver to honor Steve’s memory and to underscore both the challenge and the opportunity involved in articulating psychology’s moral vision.
