BSA: Early Career Theorists’ Symposium
6th June, 2014, held at the London School of Economics
Call for Abstracts
The Early Career Theorists’ Symposium is a special one-day symposium for up-and-coming theorists, organized on behalf of the British Sociological Association’s Theory Study Group. This symposium aims to bring together sociologists at a relatively early stage in their career who work on theory or are engaged in original theoretical work as part of their on-going research. We invite early-career sociologists, across all research areas, to submit abstracts. Submissions from advanced PhD students are also welcome.
Prof. Claire Alexander (Manchester), Prof. Patrick Baert (Cambridge), and Dr Fran Tonkiss (LSE)—covering theorisations of Race & Ethnicity, Philosophy of the Social Sciences and the Sociology of Intellectuals, and Urban and Spatial Theory and Economies, respectively—will comment on the papers. Complete information for submitting the abstract will consist of:
(1) name and contact information of the author (including career stage, e.g. PhD student, post-doc, early career academic);
(2) title of your presentation;
(3) a 500-word abstract of the presentation;
(4) five keywords descriptive of the presentation.
Please send submissions to the organizers: Dr Marcus Morgan, University of Cambridge (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dr Suzi Hall, London School of Economics (email@example.com). The deadline for submission of abstracts is 6th January, 2014.
Please plan to share a full paper of no more than 5000 words by 28th April, 2014. Registration for the event is free.
