APA Annual Convention in Chicago Showcases Psychological Science
The science 'menu' at the 1997
APA Annual Convention is
nearing completion, and those in attendance will have a wide array of activities from which to choose.
- condensed science programming from Saturday through Monday for eight science-oriented divisions--nearly all of these sessions will be held at the Palmer House. The following are but a sampling of the psychologists presenting their research: Charles Brewer, PhD, David Eckerman, PhD, Catherine Gaddy, PhD, Dorothy Hatsu-kami, PhD, Sigmund Hsiao, PhD, Laura Koppes, PhD, Geoffrey Loftus, PhD, Catherine Lutz, PhD, Daniel Ozer, PhD, Henry Pennpacker, PhD, Mark Pren-dergast, PhD, Frank Schmidt, PhD, and Elaine Walker, PhD.
- a special 'new faculty' workshop--designed to help junior faculty members and new postdocs find their way in today's academic departments (arranged by department chairs and APA).
- a conference within the Convention on 'Prevention: Contributions From Basic and Applied Research,' featuring programming that covers the breadth of this interest area --from animal models to intervention research--cosponsored by APA and the NIH Office of Behavioral and Social Science Research.
- a 'field trip,' designed for psychologists and their companions/families. We are arranging a Sunday afternoon 2-hour boat ride/architectural tour along the shoreline of Lake Michigan. Leading the tour is Roberta Feldman, PhD, an environmental psychologist, who will talk about her research on high-rise living, public housing, and 'place attachment' within the context of the city of Chicago. Registration for this special event will begin May 1. More details will be available in the next issue of Psychological Science Agenda and on our Web page.
Remember: Chicago is the place to be August 15-19!
