The first is to move beyond generalities in specifying the roles and responsibilities both the public and private sectors will have to shoulder in order for the United States to share global leadership in cybersecurity. The second is to bring together the many sub-communities...

  3. Gender and States of Emergency

    Bystydzienski, Jill
    The Gender and States of Emergency conference will gather a range of perspectives on how gender, in relation to racial, sexual, bodily and economic dimensions, is vital to investigating the impact of war, natural disasters, and political upheavals.

In addition, some political actors work to define a particular moment as a state of emergency in order to mobilize publics, re-define citizenship or utilize national machinery. Participants will explore the issue of states of emergency from a variety of angles, not...

    McConnaughy, Corrine; White, Ismail
    Overview: The field of political psychology seeks to address one overriding question: How do people make decisions in the realm of politics?

Methodology in Political Psychology will gather scholars to discuss issues of measurement, technology, research design, and data analysis that are of particular interest to those working in the field of political psychology — the tools...
