The Society for the Study of Emerging Adulthood (SSEA) is a multidisciplinary, international organization with a focus on theory and research related to emerging adulthood, which includes the age range of approximately 18 through 29 years. The primary goal of the Society is to advance the understanding of development in emerging adulthood through scholarship, education, training, policy and practice. This goal is promoted through Biennial Meetings, the flagship journal Emerging Adulthood, and a website that includes information on topics, events, and publications pertaining to emerging adults from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and countries. Membership is open to researchers, policy makers, educators and practitioners with special interests in development during this period of life.
The 8th Conference on Emerging Adulthood Program Book will be 8.5” (w) x 11” (h) and spiral bound. Submit ad(s) electronically (.pdf files) with DPI of at least 300; fonts and graphics embedded. No bleeds. NOTE: The name of the sponsoring organization will be listed in the Conference Program and will be included in the electronic program posted on the conference website.
The theme will be reflected in featured sessions
that consider emerging adulthood in a
change-making context, emphasize the cultural
context of emerging adulthood, and broaden the
topics and methods of research. The theme also
reflects the SSEA itself, which is an
established professional society that is
continuing to expand through the launch of the
Topic Networks and increased
internationalization (see www.ssea.org for more
details). NOTE: We project an increase in
attendance at the 8th Conference on Emerging
Adulthood; the SSEA hosted over 400
international scholars at the 7th Conference on
Emerging Adulthood (2015).
