2024 Annual Conference
The 57th Annual Conference of the Canadian Sociological Association (CSA) will be held in two sections.
1. Virtual sessions scheduled from Monday, June 3 through Friday, June 7, 2024.
2. In-person sessions scheduled from Monday, June 17 through Friday, June 21, 2024 as part of the Federation of Humanities and Social Sciences Congress in partnership with McGill University.
CSA Conference delegates benefit from the opportunity to learn from, and engage with, scholars and practitioners working within the discipline of sociology. We are hoping that this new Conference format will improve accessibility for our members and the wider community.
2024 Conference Theme:
Challenging Hate: Sustaining shared futures
While alarming images of a warming planet infuse the concept with a critical sense of urgency, ‘sustainability’ transcends even the immense challenges posed by climate change, urging recognition of the interconnectedness of human existence and global action on the overlapping social, economic, environmental, and technological issues that threaten our future.
As members of the global community, we share the responsibility to take on this multi-faceted challenge of a lifetime by way of concerted action across disciplines, bringing into focus its unequal impact, the bounds of our planet, and in turn, our solutions.
For this 2024 edition, enmeshing the knowledges of diverse contexts, and amplifying Black and Indigenous perspectives, Congress invites scholars, students, policymakers, and community members to reflect on what remains collectively attainable – and what must be done – in the face of this vast and complex imperative in order to bring forth solutions for today, and sustain systems of tomorrow.
The Canadian Sociological Association (CSA) is particularly interested in the mobilization, trajectories, and social implications of social movements, countermovements and solidarities in relation to Islamophobia and intersecting racism(s), gender fluidity and rising anti-2SLGBTQ+ coalitions, the school curriculum, vaccination requirements and the coalescence of seemingly ideologically disparate groups (e.g. the far-right and religious groups).
Call for Abstracts: December 6, 2023 - January 29, 2024
