Social Psychology Network:
Connecting the Hemispheres
Social Psychology Network is like the corpus callosum: it connects two hemispheres, allowing for swifter communication and better coordination between social psychologists in Australasia and those in the Northern hemisphere.
In Australasia, Social Psychology Network has been an indispensable tool for undergraduates, honours students, post-graduate students, and academic staff, affording immediate access to online research, profiles of social psychologists, and a variety of excellent teaching tools. It also helps tell the rest of the world about us: our research, our theories, our summer school opportunities, our collaborations with SPSP, and our job opportunities.
Social psychology is extremely active in Australasia -- a region that arguably has more social psychologists per capita than any other. We have many world leaders in research on social identity, self-categorization, social cognition, justice, emotion, mood, close relationships, and groups. Social Psychology Network brings our message to others, for which we are very grateful.
We appreciate all the work that has gone into Social Psychology Network and are pleased to endorse and co-sponsor its continued development for the benefit of future generations of social and personality psychologists.
