In 1995, Social Psychologists from Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand voted to form the Society of Australasian Social Psychologists (SASP). The Society was formed from an informal network of social psychologists in the two countries, who had been meeting at an annual conference since 1972.
One main aim of SASP is to facilitate contact between social psychologists around the world. Another is to support undergraduate and postgraduate education in social psychology in Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand. This is achieved through events such as conferences and summer schools, sharing information online, and scholarships and awards.
Members have access to discounted conference attendance, Summer Schools and other events, awards, network lists, and a variety of resources. Become a member today.
The Society’s email list circulates information about conferences, new positions, and other matters of interest. The email list is open to non-members and members. Subscribe to the SASP email list today.
