BSA Theory Study Group: Early Career Theorists’ Symposium
2nd April, 2013, Kings College, London
Call for Abstracts
The Early Career Theorists’ Symposium is a special one-day symposium for up-and-coming theorists, organized by the Theory Study Group of the British Sociological Association. This symposium aims to bring together sociologists at a relatively early stage in their careers 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.
Professors Mike Savage, Celia Lury, and John Holmwood will comment on the presentations.
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) three or more keywords descriptive of the presentation.
To encourage a wide range of submissions, we have not pre-specified a theme for the conference. Instead, papers will be grouped into sessions based on emergent themes.
The deadline for submission is 1st November 2012.
Invitations to present will be extended by 15th November. Please plan to share a full paper by 10th March, 2013. Registration for the event will be free for BSA members or for anyone already registered for the BSA annual conference; there will be a charge of £20 for all other attendees.
This event is timed to coincide with the BSA annual conference and is a supplement to it in terms of providing a dedicated space for early career theorists to meet and discuss their research.
