The Call for Papers for the 15th Conference of the European Sociological Association, to be held from 31 August to 3 September 2021 in Barcelona (and/or online, depending on the pandemic’s progression), is now open.
The general call from the Regional Network on Southern European Societies (RN27) is available on page 49 of ESA15 Call for Papers.
RN27 contributes to the ESA Conference theme — Sociological knowledges for alternative futures — with a series of sessions on how sociological knowledge helps to inform action (and alternative possible futures) in both public policies and civic society domains in Southern European societies. Participants are invited to discuss issues of social structure, cultural dynamics, and institutional foundations of Southern Europe as a means to understand current challenges and dilemmas. Papers with a comparative focus between countries of Southern Europe, other parts of Europe, the Mediterranean area and beyond are especially encouraged, as well as specific studies at country and regional level that provide general implications for the whole region. Authors can send their proposals to one of the main thematic tracks of RN27:
• Territories, communities and social spaces
• Nature, environments and ecologies
• Education, research and innovation
• Social stratification
• Cultures and lifestyles
• Social policy
• Migration and mobility
• Work, firms and markets
• Theoretical and conceptual development on Southern European societies
Abstract submission will be open until 15 February 2021 and you can submit your abstract via ConfTool 2021. We are looking forward for your participation!
