  • Call for Proposals: Personality and Social Psychology Review is seeking proposals for a Special Issue titled “Highlighting Personality and Social Psychological Theory from Majority World Contexts.”  We hope that contributions to this special issue will address two important questions: (1) What can dominant Western psychology learn from social and personality psychological concepts and theories rooted in and oriented around perspectives from Majority World contexts? and (2) How can social and personality psychological concepts and theories from Majority World contexts contribute to a truly global science of personality and social psychology?  The manuscripts published in this special issue will be shorter than those typically published in PSPR in order to amplify as many voices as possible: 2500-5000 words (excluding abstract and references).  See https://spsp.org/news/spsp-news/personality-and-social-psychology-review-journal-call-for-proposals for much more information.  Proposals are due February 15, 2024.
