BRITISH SOCIOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION

ANNUAL CONFERENCE 2009

Thursday 16th – Saturday 18th April 2009, Cardiff City Hall, Cardiff

The 2009 Conference is a new way of organising the annual conference of the Association. Instead of the call for papers being organised under a single conference theme, participants can present on whatever topics they wish within broad streams (and open streams) that reflect the core research areas of the membership:


Work, Economy and Society

Medicine, Health and Illness

Consumption

Culture, Media and Society

Theory

Methods

Generations and the Lifecourse

Religion

Social Divisions / Social Identities

Science and Technology Studies

Space and Place

Social Relationships

Education

Open Stream(s)


All BSA study groups are strongly encouraged to contribute posters/ papers and other activities addressed to these streams. There will also be opportunities for study groups to meet independently.

The BSA Presidential Address and two Keynote Plenaries organised to address the Conference theme:

The Challenge of Global Social Inquiry

Within each of the main streams a sub-plenary will be organised to address the Conference theme. These sub-plenaries will be staggered across the Conference timetable.
