SCCR is a multi-disciplinary organization with members sharing a common devotion to the conduct of cross-cultural and comparative research.

The SCCR conference provides a unique atmosphere encouraging attendees to get to know each other better, form lasting relationships, and provide genuine support to their fellow colleagues and students. Whether you’re a faculty member, independent researcher, or student, we invite you to consider organizing a symposium or presenting individual papers or posters.
