About this session: We welcome a wide range of submissions that explore the intersection of social psychology and social networks. Social psychological processes are some of the key mechanisms that explain the interdependence of individuals and social networks. Many social network theories draw upon these social psychological processes to explain how network structures emerge based on individual psychological characteristics and affiliation preferences, which shape local tie configurations and ultimately broad structural features of social networks (e.g., structural balance theories). Social network theories also emphasize how social network characteristics, in turn, shape individual beliefs and behaviors, and group outcomes, through mechanisms that include social learning, normative influence, mimicry, social capital, and social comparison. This session presents new research that advances knowledge about how individual social psychological characteristics, such as social intelligence and social schema, influence network ties and tie dynamics, as well as studies that examine how networks influence individuals through implicit and explicit social psychological mechanisms.
