Call for Submissions: Social Science Postgraduate Conference

The PGR conference committee is pleased to invite postgraduate researchers to our annual social science conference entitled Translation and Transformation, to be held on Wednesday 5th June, 2013 here in the Department of Sociological Studies at The University of Sheffield. We are pleased to announce that this year our key note speaker will be Professor Richard Jenkins.

Call for submissions
We are inviting proposals for papers and posters aimed at exploring your research to date and encourage your presentations to be innovative in their delivery, organisation and range of topics – with special emphasis on how they might convey your message to other doctoral students. Possible themes include:

  • glocalisation
  • policy, regulation & governance
  • insectionality, identity and boundaries
  • communication and representation
  • method and truth/translation
  • empowerment/participation
  • belief
  • practice(s)

The conference is free to attend with refreshments and lunch provided on the day. Interested persons should submit their proposal by Friday 5th April, 2013 through the department’s electronic submission page. Places at the conference are limited and notification of the result of your submission will be given by early May, 2013.

The conference has its own twitter feed which you can follow for updates – and don’t forget to check out the department’s twitter feed for more events and information.

We look forward to seeing you in June!
