Imagining the political / The politics of imagination - The Sociological Review 100th Anniversary Conference
1st ? 3rd June 2009

Call for Papers

The political and its relation to sociology is a source of profound debate,
with ideas about politics setting up both possibilities and limits for
sociological knowledge. If class has long counted, along with resistance and
activism, writings on religion, the body and gender are already imagining
the political in novel ways. And in opening up everyday life to issues of
power and technology, the political comes centre stage. The aim of this
conference is to bring together sociologists from around the globe with high
quality papers developing the sociological enterprise or questioning its
boundaries. Over the last century our journal has opened up sociological
debates and published papers on the widest range of topics. All submissions
welcome.

Abstracts less than 450 words to c.m.baggaley@socrev.keele.ac.uk by 22
February 2009.
