– Special Topic –

Communicating Affective Science

– Career Spotlight –

Date: Wednesday, April 14th, 2021

Time: 1:15pm – 2:15pm PDT (8:15pm – 9:15pm UTC)

Description: Scientific practice and success is often pushed forward through methodological innovations. We shall play with how planful, meaningful, and productive engagement with those innovations can hasten progress and enhance impact.

– Rejection & Resilience –

This salon will be about the many rejections we all meet in academia, how to handle them and how to realise that even the most successful people have long track records of rejections. Three successful scholars (Bliss-Moreau, Leknes, Pollack) will each happily share highlights from their own rejections, but more importantly take questions on what to learn and what not to learn from academic failures.

– Ask the Editor –

Three Editors from Affective Science are here to answer all of your burning questions about any aspect of the publishing or reviewing process. Don’t be shy – they might even bust some myths!

– Ask Me Anything! –

Pearls of wisdom served on a silver plate at SAS 2021! Come along to these informal sessions and ask our well-seasoned SAS members all of your burning questions about navigating life as an affective science. Ask them anything!
