The theme of the BSA Annual Conference 2014 will be ‘Changing Society’. This follows on nicely from the theme of engagement at this year’s conference in London, where BSA President, John Holmwood, Guardian Columnist, Polly Toynbee and BBC Radio 4’s Laurie Taylor all championed the need for sociologists to engage in public debate and prove their contribution. The theme of changing society will therefore focus on how sociologists are affecting that change, both individually and as a collective discipline.
With this in mind, the BSA is inviting submissions for the 2014 Conference on any sociological research topic, with individual members and BSA study groups all encouraged to contribute posters/papers and other activities. Suggestions for grouped sessions within the new Frontiers stream are also welcomed, while there will also be an opportunity for study groups to meet independently over the three days.
If you wish to submit an abstract, please visit the BSA Annual Conference 2014 page on our website and follow the online instructions. Alternatively you can speak with a member of the events team on 0191 383 0839 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note the final deadline for abstract submissions is Friday 18 October 2013.
