XVII ISA World Congress of Sociology Gothenburg, Sweden
July 11-17, 2010
Call for Papers
The International Sociological Association is organizing its XVII World Congress of Sociology in Gothenburg, Sweden, July 11-17, 2010. The Research Committee on Futures Research (RC 07) invites proposals for papers and sessions.
Future Moves Markets, Politics, and Publics in Global and Comparative Perspectives
What are the pertinent future trends? What are the forces that shape futures? What alternative visions are available? Which factors nourish the social imagination, and which factors restrict it? What are, or should be, sociology's own future moves to meet the challenges of our time?—A broad array of sessions offers to engage with these and other questions by focusing on specific themes such as globalization, environment, social movements, state and insurgent terrorism, media and new technologies, urbanism, work and leisure. Other sessions provide opportunity to concentrate on conceptual issues or to discuss policy matters and the experiences of practitioners. The program is meant to provide a platform for a broad spectrum of methodological, theoretical, and practical approaches, including interdisciplinary collaboration. We invite proposals for papers, posters, and sessions on any of the topics indicated below or other issues related to futures research.
Deadline extended to: November 15, 2009
