Welcome to PSI

PSI is a community of scholars interested in the study of power, status, and influence. We focus primarily on the individual level of analysis, but we are also interested in how macro-level variables can affect individual behavior. Our aim is to invite scholars from all academic disciplines who share our research interests to join our community. The primary purpose of this website is to publicize and share recent and ongoing research by members of our community and to provide a venue in which individuals begin discussion of common interests. We hope this colloquy will enrich our scholarship and that of our colleagues.



PSI will be hosting its third conference in May 2012 at the Northwestern University, Kellogg Graduate School of Management. Further details can be found on the Conference page.
