The organising committee invites submissions for the forthcoming conference to be held in Melbourne, Australia. The specific focus of the conference is to revisit the critical foundations of community psychology to promote critical reflexivity and identify opportunities for change. This plays on the definitions of the term ‘critical’ in that the issues we discuss are urgent (time critical) as well as critical in the sense of looking at them through an alternative lens. Issues might include Indigenous sovereignty, global migration, climate change, gender identity, social determinants of health, psychology and neoliberalism, is community psychology really critical?...
A special edition of the Australian Community Psychologist is planned to emerge from this conference. Following the initial submission and review of abstracts, presenters accepted will have the option of submitting full papers by the end of March for peer review, with provision for authors to revise after the conference in line with their presentation.
