Even in the face of adversity, these are exciting times for sociology.
We all know that austerity measures have divided opinion and we’ve all seen what’s followed. Many of us have been directly involved, or affected by recent events. Expect our most dynamic and vigorous event to date.
This year, we’re exploring sociology in an age of austerity. Our themes are broad and all-encompassing. We’re assessing the impact on law, families, education, healthcare, and so much more. We’ve attracted the finest scholars worldwide to lead the debate. As a postgraduate student, you’re bursting with ideas. Why not come and add your voice to theirs?
The current climate can influence both your research and your life around it. Join us and learn from the world’s best about the impact of sociology in these turbulent times. Our conference could make an invaluable contribution to your studies and inspire your next move.
With this in mind, let’s hear your ideas. We’re now accepting abstracts, so make your contribution to the debate. You’re sure to get out all that you put in and more!
Austerity isn’t just about cuts. It’s about finding new ways to meet the challenges of providing for society on a limited budget. Help us explore those challenges.
As a postgraduate student, you’ll be all too aware of the challenges ahead in your own career. It’s a competitive world out there. Put yourself above your peers with a standout feature on your CV. Get yourself heard amongst world-leading sociologists and policy makers. As the next generation, you’re going to want to know what the future has in store, and play a part in making it happen.
