APS Award Address
Passionate Love: Looking Back and Looking Ahead
Friday, May 25, 2012,
10:00 AM - 10:50 AM
Elaine Hatfield will be introduced by co-recipient Ellen Berscheid.
In this talk, I trace the history of research on passionate love and sexual desire from the 1960s -- when very little research existed -- to the present. I then glance at how scholars from many disciplines have since waded into these waters and close by making some intrepid predictions about where all this research may be headed in the next 50 years.
Ellen Berscheid and Elaine Hatfield are recipients of the 2012 Association for Psychological Science (APS) William James Fellow Award.
