The Conference presentations and special sessions will invite debate about the relationships between the natural and the social and the ways in which the nature-culture distinction is being challenged by developments within both social theory and empirical research.
Addressing the theme of Social Worlds, Natural Worlds are three high profile plenary speakers - Nikolas Rose (LSE), Garry Runciman (University of Cambridge) and Kate Soper (London Metropolitan University). There will be a broad range of activites and a large number of stimulating new symposia, panels and social events planned.
In 2007, the Annual Conference attracted over 630 delegates, a plethora of media attention and was hailed by all as a very successful event. As the leading event for sociologists in the UK, we are sure the 2008 Conference will be just as rewarding.
If you attend just one event in 2008, make sure its the BSA Annual Conference.
