We are delighted to announce registration for Undisciplining: Conversations from the Edges is open!
Undisciplining challenges the presumed mainstream of sociological thought, its geographical assumptions and disciplinary hierarchies. Our manifesto argues that, ‘to renew the critical and creative appeal of sociology, we need to be responsive to what can be opened up, conceptually as much as practically … about what could be thought differently, and how that creates more possibilities for what could and should be done next, both in the academy and outside of it’.
This event signals our renewed commitment to providing a platform for these interventions and to making the sociological matter. It builds on The Sociological Review’s rich history and future ambitions to bring the conversations at the edges into the centre, to unsettle comfortable and convenient understandings of the social world, and to recognise that the potential of sociological thought and understanding exists through debates that extend beyond disciplines and the university.
The conference will platform a large number of internationally renowned speakers through keynotes and plenaries. A number of innovative participatory workshops will also be occurring over the 2.5 days of the main conference.
For details on all aspects of the conference, including all keynote, plenaries, workshop sessions, the pre-conference ECR day on Monday 18th June 2018, travel and accommodation information and how to register – please see the conference website: https://undisciplining.org/
