Call for Proposals- 2015 Association for Women in Psychology National Conference

San Francisco, CA - March 5-8, 2015

Conference Theme

Restorative justice within a feminist psychological context is the theme of the 2015 AWP conference. Restorative justice is an approach to repairing communities after a crime in which survivors, offenders, and community members decide on ways to move forward and heal. Restorative justice emphasizes ways for survivor’s voices to be heard and offenders to be accountable and make amends. At AWP 2015, we hope to explore how feminists can learn more about restorative justice as well as build skills in restorative justice work. We also seek to explore ways the spirit of restorative justice may be applied to multiple topics of interest to feminist scholars.

All submissions relevant to feminist psychology are welcomed but we are particularly interested in those connected to our theme. Proposals broaching the topics of how feminists can help engage in restorative justice through healing and rebuilding communities through therapy, research, advocacy, and social change are invited. Proposals that encourage collaborating with each other, learning from multiple cultural perspectives, challenging privileges, leaning into tensions around the theme of restorative justice, and navigating our intersecting identities as we engage in restorative justice work are of particular interest.
