Come join us for our Annual Meeting where we'll enjoy some refreshments, elect our slate of officers for the 2019-2020 academic year, and hear Wellesley's own Julie Norem, Margaret Hamm Professor of Psychology, speak about The Imposter Phenomenon.  Professor Norem teaches courses on personality psychology, and optimism and pessimism.  Her research focuses on strategies people use to pursue their goals, with an emphasis on the strategy of defensive pessimism, and on the way self-knowledge influences adaptation, performance, and social relationships, particularly among those who feel like imposters.  She joined the faculty at Wellesley in 1992

Professor Norem received her A.B. in Behavioral Sciences from the University of Chicago in 1982, and her Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Michigan in 1987.  Before joining the faculty at Wellesley, she was a professor at Northeastern University.

Dr. Norem  has written numerous book chapters and articles for scholarly journals, and has presented dozens of papers at scientific conferences across the country and abroad.  She has been an Associate Editor of both the Journal of Research in Personality and the Personality and Social Psychology Review.  She has also been on the editorial board of several scholarly journals, and held a variety of appointed and elected positions in the Society of Personality and Social Psychology.  She is a founding member and past-president of the Association for Research in Personality.
