Sociology Seminar series

Sociological Impact in Extraordinary Times

The School of Sociology's Seminar Series engages diverse forms of presentation and topical discussion to contribute to contemporary academic and public debate. It aims to generate meaningful approaches to social problems and to inspire new ecologies of practice. While raising issues of contemporary and future relevance, the series is also attentive to our history. It aims to think through our debt to negated and appropriated ways of knowing and being, which have formed the conditions of social scientific knowledge.

With this in view, the series is broadly oriented to the theme of Decolonising. Throughout its diverse topics and modes of presentation, we aim to explore the ways in which habits of thought, language, culture and sociality are tied to the material work of colonisation and decolonisation.

Submissions

If you wish to have a paper considered for the series, please send a title, abstract, brief biography and preferred presentation date to Maria Hynes and Rebecca Pearse
