Due to a malfunctioning server earlier this week, the web page was innaccessible for several days. As an effect, we have decided to extend the abstract submission deadline until April 28. Notifications will be sent no later than May 12, and the early registration fee will be in effect until May 21.
We are happy to announce a one-day PhD workshop on cultural sociology on August 12, open to PhD students in the Nordic countries and sponsored by ISA and NSA. More information here.
What does it mean to be a sociologist tomorrow?
This question is also the invitation to a one-day PhD pre-conference organized by Lund University PhD students. More details here: http://nsa2014.se/phd-pre-conference/
We live in an age of accelerating and transforming social change. Old rules no longer apply and taken for granted solutions fail.
This time of transformation is an invitation for sociology to re-vitalize the study of society. As a critical and emancipatory discipline, we are situated between literature and science, equipped to observe, analyse, and understand fundamental problems that lie in the blind spot of other disciplines. But to retain our capacity to ask the most pertinent questions, we must also be aware of our own blind spots. With the 27th conference of the Nordic Sociological Association we invite colleagues to consider which blind spots that we have missed so far and to identify which blind spots should urgently be explored.
You can expect a programme with keynote addresses from Michael Burawoy, Eva Illouz, and Guy Standing, a topical series of moderated panel discussions, and a wide range of regular sessions.
Welcome to Lund, 14-16 August, 2014!
This page will be updated continuously as more information on programme, registration, etc. become available.
