Along with addressing pressing issues such as migration, social welfare, community mobilization, homeownership, disaster, and war, we want to think about sociologyâ€™s understanding of time, place, and experience.
What is our understanding of crisis time, future time, historical time? Does sociological thought about modernity and postmodernity offer adequate temporal frameworks? What assumptions about space and the boundaries of place do we hold and how must we rethink them? What understandings of the nation, the family, the community, the market, or the institutions of civil society should we deploy in sociological research? How is our concept of experience meeting changes in practices involving the body, affect, spirituality, and reason? How are thoughts about race, sexuality, ethnicity and class implicated? What technologies are influencing our understanding of methodology, the collection and presentation of data, and the transmission of information?
Renowned social theorist Patricia Ticineto Clough is our keynote speaker, and further distinguished faculty will join the conversation, including Stanley Aronowitz, Sujatha Fernandes, Eric Lichten, Randy Martin, and Saadia Toor.
The call for abstracts and further details are available at
Graduate students from all departments and all schools are invited to submit abstracts for presentation. We want to provide our conference as a space to cultivate dialogue and conversation among students on pressing issues of scholarly and political concern.
The deadline for submission of abstracts is October 1, 2009.
We look forward to seeing you in Manhattan in the fall!
