Sociologidagarna 2018: Call for Abstracts

The deadline for abstract submissions is 1 November 2017.

Divisions and polarizations are increasingly prevalent in contemporary societies. They are visible in growing income disparities, divisions between rural and urban areas, between locals and migrants, and also in rifts between the political establishment and popular sentiments. The recent rise of populist movements and social upheavals have challenged the liberal consensus and power blocs that have shaped the last decades in many societies. These contenders may also unleash social forces imbued with xenophobia and anti-democratic sentiments.

Sociology has tools able to address the problem of growing polarizations, and its ’voice’ in public debates is critical in this changing social landscape.
This conference invites sociologists to take part in a critical examination of the current polarizing conditions as well as in a reassessment of sociology’s contributions to the public debate.

Keynote speakers:
Michèle Lamont (Harvard University) and
Elena Zdravomyslova (European University at St. Petersburg).

Semi-plenaries are also being arranged on the topic.

We warmly welcome presentations of original work at our regular sessions, organized by our working groups, on any sociological theme.
Please submit a 200-word abstract through our online system.
Papers are welcome in either Swedish or English.
