Dates and Location of the 4th Conference on Emerging Adulthood Announced!

November 2008


We are excited to announce that the 4th Conference on Emerging Adulthood will be held October 29th and 30th, 2009 in Atlanta, Georgia at The Westin Buckhead Atlanta.

The main focus of the conference remains consistent with the mission of the first three conferences: to provide a forum for presentation and discussion of theory, research, and policy relevant to the age period 18 to 29, emerging adulthood. We invite theoretical and empirical presentations, and encourage interdisciplinary and international themes. A limited number of travel stipends will be awarded to promote diversity in conference presentations. A keynote address (speaker TBA) will discuss a current topic in the study of emerging adults. In addition to poster sessions and paper symposia, the conference will host innovative sessions-opportunities for scholars to present work in novel, creative formats. The program will also contain interactive events to facilitate networking among scholars on emerging adulthood.

The call for proposals and travel stipend applications will be posted by December 1st, 2008; proposals due May 1st, 2009.

If you have not joined the listserv to receive conference announcements directly via email, please send your name and email address to info@ssea.org.

Hope to see you there!
