'People Make Places: Ways of Feeling the World'
10th SIEF International Congress, Lisbon, April 17-21, 2011
Congress Announcement: Theme, Sub-themes, and Call for Panels
The 10th SIEF International Congress invites colleagues and other scholars to present new perspectives on how people's lives, memories, emotions and values interact with places and localities. The Congress will be structured around three themes: Shaping Lives; Creativity & Emotions; and Ecology & Ethics. In each of the themes, case studies as well as inquiries into theory are welcome. The Congress aims to encourage in particular boundary-crossing explorations of ontological, epistemological and ethical issues that arise from a greater emphasis on a sensitive and even sensuous approach to knowledge and understanding.
Each day of the Congress, a specific theme will be introduced by two invited keynote speakers, leading international scholars, and discussed further in a series of panel sessions, some of which will run in parallel. Workshops, intended to be open to practice-based research, and poster sessions, will also take place.
We invite colleagues and scholars to propose panels and workshops that relate to the above described theme and subthemes of the Congress. The Call for Panels and Workshops is now open at http://www.nomadit.co.uk/sief/sief2011/, and will run from 1st December 2009 to 15 February 2010. The call for papers will follow in May 2010. All proposals must be submitted using our online form. Full information is given on the website.
The congress will take place at the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences of the Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Av. de Berna 26 Lisbon, in central Lisbon
