Symposium Papers

Culture 2.0: Socio-cultural elements of relationships lived online

Symposium Abstract An estimated 2 billion people around the globe use social network sites (SNS). Research suggests that this proliferation of new media will homogenize interpersonal processes: showing off, amassing large interpersonal networks, and independent identities will become the norm. This symposium, however, pushes back on this technologically-deterministic stance. Papers presented here argue that culture, […]

Consequences of the circular motivational structure of values

Symposium Abstract The circularity of the value structure, central to the Schwartz model, has many theoretical and methodological implications. Presentations in this symposium use the idea of the circularity of the value structure to make theoretical predictions for relations between values and other theoretical constructs of interest (the first two presentations) and to explain value […]

Value Development in Youth: structure and content

Symposium Abstract Values, the guiding principles in people’s lives, undergo changes as children grow. Nevertheless, values were so far studied mainly among adults, and even studies in children were mostly cross-sectional. The current symposium presents three longitudinal studies that examine developments in value structure and priorities over time, in samples of youth from three countries. […]

Youth Development in Contexts of Globalization and Sociocultural Change

Symposium Abstract To take seriously the wide-reaching psychological implications of rapid soiocultural change (Greenfield, 2009; Jensen, Arnett, & McKenzie, 2011), theoretical and empirical work on the impact of globalization on youth development is sorely needed. This symposium illuminates broad effects of globalization on the lives of youth and families at the community, family, and individual […]

The Identity of Africans in Italy, the Netherlands, and South Africa

Symposium Abstract: Identity, which is “a person’s self-definition” or answers the question “who are you?” has remained a central focus in psychological research. Over the last few years, there has been an increase in identity studies about people of African descent (other than African-Americans in the United States) both on and beyond the African continent. […]

Multiple Identity Resources for Well-Being of Roma Adolescents in Southern, Central and Eastern Europe

Symposium Abstract Among adolescents from highly marginalized communities, identity is a salient source of strength and resilience by buffering the devastating effects of their adverse conditions. We tested this assumption in a large sample of Roma youth (Europe’s largest and most vulnerable ethnic minority, historically subjected to severe discrimination) across five European countries (Albania, Bulgaria, […]

New Approaches to the Conceptualisation and Measurement of Self-Construal

Symposium Abstract Self-construal has been frequently proposed as an individual-level mediator of cultural differences believed to be attributable to variations in individualism-collectivism. However, results have not been encouraging, perhaps due to the psychometric inadequacy of most measures that have been used. This symposium presents results of a project in which new measures were constructed by […]

Are Meanings of Awe Shared across Cultures?

Symposium Abstract Research in the US has sought to define the functions and characteristics of awe. Data from this research has resulted in the classification of awe as an emotion that is both positive in valence and cognitive in orientation. However, it remains unclear the degree to which these aspects of awe might show cultural […]

Advances in Understanding Basic Processes of Values and their Cross-Cultural Implications

Symposium Abstract Values are pivotal in cross-cultural research. This symposium will advance knowledge of basic processes of values with implications for cross-cultural psychology. Ye will expand knowledge on processes of value change by showing short-term changes of values in bicultural (Chinese-Western) participants from Hong Kong and the effect of such changes on well-being. Bardi will […]
