|Description:||10th Conference of the European Sociological Association|
|Location:||Geneva, Uni-Mail, Faculty of Social and Economic Sciences of the University of Geneva, Switzerland|
|Subject:||Theme of the conference: Social Relations in turbulent times Economic and social crisis in these turbulent times challenges both our sociological skills and our imagination. Since its beginnings as a scientific discipline, sociology has sought answers to the social questions that arise in different historical contexts. In turbulent times like those we are living in, when social inequalities tend to deepen and social cohesion is threatened, research agendas are frequently redefined and theories must be adapted to cope with new ideas and new social realities. Sociological gatherings like conferences serve to challenge our conceptual resources and our capacity to understand and explain these social trends.
