13th International Conference on Social Stress Research | Call for Papers
The 13th International Conference on Social Stress Research will be held June 21 - 23, 2012 in Dublin, Ireland at the Hilton Dublin Hotel. The International Conference on Social Stress has become an important conference for scholars working in the area of stress and health and a major forum for sharing new research that incorporates components of the stress process. The stress conferences, sponsored by the University of New Hampshire, are held approximately every two years and attract the leading scholars in the field.
The 2012 conference will feature two distinguished keynote speakers, Scott Schieman and R. Jay Turner. The conference is being organized and directed by Professors Heather Turner, Karen Van Gundy, and Catherine Moran in the Department of Sociology at the University of New Hampshire.
The final program for the 2012 conference will be based on the content of submissions. However, the conference program typically includes sessions on themes such as: stress across the life course; work-related stress; stress in family contexts; gender and stress; race, ethnicity, and culture in the stress process; stress in adolescence; intersections of physical and mental health; catastrophic and traumatic stress; and neighborhood context of stress.
We invite you to submit either a complete paper or an extended abstract. In the case of abstracts, you must provide sufficient information for evaluation of the substance and scientific merit of the paper.
To be considered for presentation, papers (or extended abstracts) must be received by December 30, 2011. Further information regarding the 2012 conference, including conference registration, will be available soon on our website: http://www.unh.edu/stressconference.
