CALL FOR WORKING GROUP PROPOSALS – The 28th Conference of the Nordic Sociological Association, 11-13 August, 2016, Helsinki, Finland

The Organizing Committee cordially invites you to submit a proposal for organizing a working group at the next conference of the Nordic Sociological Association by 15th of November, 2015.

The Nordic Sociological Association does not have a formalized set of Research Networks. This means that organizing sessions in our conferences is up to the individual scholars and loose networks – meaning, your activity and voluntary work!

The theme of the conference is ‘Knowledge-Making Practices and Sociology’s Global Challenge’. The theme calls us to think together about ways to address the Eurocentrism and parochialism of many of our central concepts and categories. In addition to the conference’s theme, the programme covers other themes of general interest, such as North-South issues within the Nordic region, the renewed political tensions between East and West in Europe, sociology’s relation to economics, and where and how sociologists publish their research. We invite working group proposals in all major sociological areas. In addition, we welcome contributions related to the conference’s theme as well as other current themes in sociology. Please consider putting together a panel so that your research interests are reflected in the program!
