TheÂ European Sociological AssociationÂ (ESA) is calling for papers for their 11th conference, taking place inÂ Turin, ItalyÂ from theÂ 28-31 August 2013. The topic of the conference is â€œCrisis, Critique and Changeâ€œ.
There are multiple calls by all the different Research Network and Research Streams, ranging from Environment and Society or Quantitative Research to Social Theory, as well as a Call for Paper for a pre-conference PhD Workshop at the end of August.
One particular Research Network is theÂ Sociology of the ArtsÂ RN chaired byÂ Tasos Zembylas:
Artâ€™s position within society and politics has always been complex and ambivalent. Artists may raise a critical voice or offer ideological legitimation for a dominant, hegemonic image of society. They may display a strong commitment or keep a distance from othersâ€™ fate. The attitude of the arts towards contemporary issues such as the ecological crisis, the debt crisis, violence against minorities and opponents, economic exploitation, and deprivation of peopleâ€™s rights has never lost any relevance. Therefore, we would like to create special sessions and invite papers on this topic with the expectation that they may include a broad nexus of sub-issues around the relation and commitment of arts in society.
More informationÂ on this specific call, is availableÂ here.
The deadline for submissions is theÂ 1st February 2013. For further information on the Conference, all the Calls for Papers and the submission procedure please visit:http://www.esa11thconference.eu/home/
