The Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues is proud to announce the Otto Klineberg Intercultural and International Relations Award honoring Dr. Otto Klineberg (1899-1992), an early president of SPSSI and distinguished figure in these fields. The award is given to “the best paper or article of the year on intercultural or international relations” – a field about which Professor Klineberg cared deeply from his social psychological commitment. Originality of the contribution, whether theoretical or empirical, will be given special weight.
Entries can be unpublished manuscripts, in press papers, book chapters, or journal articles published no more than 18 months prior to the submission deadline. Entries cannot be returned. Submissions from across the social sciences are encouraged, however the paper must clearly demonstrate its relevance for psychological theory and research in the domain of intercultural and international relations. The competition is open to non-members, as well as members of SPSSI, and graduate students are especially urged to submit papers.
