Society for Cross-Cultural Research

Society-Cross-Cultural_0_0.pngThe Society for Cross-Cultural Research is a multi-disciplinary organization. Its members all share a common devotion to cross-cultural and cultural work in our scholarship and teaching. SCCR members are professionals and students from fields such as psychology, anthropology, sociology, education, family studies, social work, law, human development, psychiatry, communications, ethnic studies, and business.  We will be holding our 2019 conference February 13-16 in Jacksonville, Florida!

As a smaller society, our annual conferences tend to be intimate, collegial affairs with a very affordable price. We hope you’ll consider submitting an abstract to present your research at our 2019 meeting. You can learn more about submissions, which are due on November 15, here.

Highlights of attending the conference include a welcome reception (free to conference attendees!), a coffee break sponsored by Division 52 (International Psychology) of the American Psychological Association, a cash-bar, a conference banquet, and a mentoring breakfast. The details of these events and the registration form can be found here:

Students (undergraduate and graduate) who attend the SCCR 2019 conference will have access to a network of student-friendly scholars who are experts in cross-cultural and cultural research in many different fields (e.g., psychology, anthropology, education, social work, family studies, economics, etc.). Interaction with these scholars from multiple disciplines gives students the opportunity to see how they can better their own studies and make connections that will last them throughout their future endeavors. This annual conference strives to include student-focused events, including a mentoring breakfast with SCCR veterans (free for students) and a networking happy hour for students.
