The 10th Conference of the European Sociological Association, University of Geneva, 7th-10th September 2011
The European Sociological Association invites PhD students from all countries to submit their proposals for participation in a PhD Workshop. We welcome contributions from all areas of sociology that are related to the theme of the 10th ESA Conference ‘Social Relations in Turbulent Times’ (www.esa10thconference.com), including macro and micro-sociological approaches as well as theoretical and empirical papers. The Workshop will be held prior to the 10th Conference of the European Sociological Association hosted by the University of Geneva. It aims to explore the challenges of the various ‘turbulences’ of contemporary societies from different sociological perspectives. Key note lectures given by members of the ESA Executive and plenary discussions will be combined with in-depth workshops that provide opportunities for presenting PhD research.
We are pleased to offer funding for 24 scholars covering workshop fees as well as travel and accommodation during the workshop on a flat rate basis. Please note: eligible for funding are ESA members in good standing, who are PhD students at the time of application. Candidates will be selected by scientific excellence following a peer-review process; we are also aiming at a fair distribution across the various countries and areas of sociological research and theories. We invite proposal outlines of no more than 1,000 words to be submitted via the online submission system; proposals directly sent to the workshop organisers will not be considered! The online submission system opens on 10 January 2011 and closes on 25 February (final deadline!). You will receive an automatic confirmation and will be informed on the results by 31 March. Please visit the ESA 10th Conference website for further information (www.esa10thconference.com) or contact PhD Workshop organisers: Ellen Kuhlmann (email@example.com) and Elina Oinas (firstname.lastname@example.org).
