Prewitt-Freilino to present on political identity

Jennifer Prewitt-Freilino (Associate Professor, HPSS) will present a talk titled “Misclassification Concerns Among Political Partisans Who Cross Party Lines” as a part of symposium at the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues’ annual conference in Portland, Oregon from June 27-29.

Her work explores how concerns about being seen as a member of a rival political party (i.e., misclassification) can hinder strongly identified partisans support for out of party candidates, and how disclaimers can assuage those misclassification concerns and therefore increase confidence in one’s autonomous political decisions.┬áSPSSI’s biennial conventions provide a forum for the exchange of scholarly information related to an array of important social issues.
