Circles of Feminist Conversations: Confronting Colonialism

| |
As feminists within and across disciplines, we will collectively explore the types of solidarities, conversations and professional practices that we might have with diverse community members and groups inside and outside academe. Presenters may articulate the particular contributions, historical andor contemporary, that they feel their feminist approach offers to solidarities and social movements for change amidst and beyond the patriarchal past and present. This sub-session is hosted by the Canadian Sociological Association.

Climate Change and Energy Futures

| |
A major driver of climate change is a societal reliance on fossil fuel (coal, oil and gas) based energy systems. One of the critical tasks for addressing climate change is to re-evaluate and re-imagine our energy systems. However, work on climate change and energy futures has been done primarily by engineers and economists. This has produced a range of engineering-economic models, but these tend to neglect the social and political forces that support or constrain various energy futures, as well as various dimensions of social power and inequality. Through the engagement of a wide range of sociological perspectives, this session will generate new theoretical and substantive insight into the connections between climate change, energy systems and social futures.

Organizers: Mark CJ Stoddart, Memorial University, John McLevey, University of Waterloo

Cognitive Sociology

| |
Central questions orient researchers in the cognitive sociology paradigm. What is the relationship between the social and the cognitive? Can sociologists lend insight on debates related to mind, brain, and cognition? Would sociological theory benefit from empirical research in cognitive science? Is sociology undergoing a ‘cognitive turn’? How should sociologists respond to the apparent threat of “neuroscientific imperialism” (Coulter, 2008)? This panel seeks to explore sociological research that takes up cognition in any dimension, either as supported by or critical of research in the mind sciences.

Organizer: Ryan McVeigh, Lakehead University
