Call for Session Proposals: DCSCRN at the 12th Conference of the European Sociological Association, Prague, 25-28 August 2015

The DCSCRN Coordinating Committee (CC) invites all members of the network and all colleagues to submit proposals for specific sessions to be held during the 2015 ESA conference that will be organized in Prague from 25 to 28 August. The ideas that you send us will enrich the program and ensure the quality of the sessions of our research network. We invite you to send us not only suggestions concerning our RN08 sessions, but also for joint sessions with other research networks.

A number of questions may be considered relevant for both the European and global contexts in the RN8 sessions and touch on the general ESA conference theme ‘Differences, inequalities and sociological imagination’:

  • How is sociological imagination unfolded within the disaster, conflict and social crisis research?
  • How are well known inequalities reinforced and how are new forms of inequality produced during crises and disastrous events?
  • How can differences such as gender, social class, age and ethnic background be conceptualized in our research field?
  • What kind of theoretical and methodological issues within the disaster, conflict and social crisis research are important to discuss in 2015?

We welcome proposals from people who have research, teaching and/or practical experience with the topics of the network but particularly those that engage with the conference theme and with key theoretical methodological and research issues in the field of disasters, social conflicts, social crises and crisis policies or practices.

The CC will consider all proposals in order to provide out members and other participants at the ESA conference with a rich and diverse program. Members and colleagues from countries within and outside of Europe are invited to participate and send their proposals. Please note that we expect proposers to convene and chair the session proposed.

Proposals for sessions should not exceed 250 words and should be submitted no later than
October 1 st to the DCSCRN coordinator,, and vice coordinator, If you have any queries, please contact Nina Blom Andersen and Antti Silvast at the same e-mail addresses.
