Extending The Boundaries: New Research in Sociology
Friday 27th April 2007 9.30am ˆ 6.00pm.
School of Social Sciences, City University, Whiskin Street, London EC1V 0HB
In the contemporary world Œboundaries‚ have become an increasingly
important and often contested issue. Migration and new media technologies
challenge notions of territorially bounded social and cultural identities.
New working practices such as working from home are increasingly blurring
the boundaries between the Œpublic‚ location of the office and the
Œprivate‚ location of the home. Additionally within sociology, social
theorists such as Giddens are increasingly transcending disciplinary
boundaries. But where, why and how are boundaries still enforced and
maintained? And what is the resulting impact on the quality of our social
existence and/or sociology as an academic discipline?
The aim of the conference is to explore the concept of Œboundaries‚ in
different substantive sociological areas, but also in terms of
interdisciplinary and methodological divisions in order to create
opportunities for developing new and diverse perspectives on dealing with
issues relating to the concept of Œboundaries‚ in different contexts.
Research students at any stage in their doctoral research are invited to
submit papers exploring the issue of Œboundaries‚. Papers can be
methodological, theoretical and /or substantive and submissions from all
sociology related disciplines are welcomed.
The conference provides an opportunity for research students to present and
discuss their work in a friendly and supportive environment and
registration is free to all research students.
Abstracts should be a maximum of 300 words and submitted to
E.Karamanidou@city.ac.uk by Friday 8th December 2006.
Presenters of accepted papers will be notified by 26th January 2007.
