Translation & Transformation
Social Science Postgraduate Researcher Conference
Wednesday 5th June 2013, Department of Sociological Studies, University of Sheffield
Call for papers
The organising committee invites submissions for our annual social science conference, under the encompassing theme of "Translation and Transformation". We welcome proposals from social-scientists-in-training that reflect on this theme (however they may chose to interpret it) and hope to encourage debate on some of the following issues:
- policy, regulation & governance
- insectionality, identity and boundaries
- communication and representation
- method and truth/translation
- (em)powerment / participation
The PGR social science conference welcomes papers and posters that are aimed at exploring your research to date. We encourage papers to be innovative in their delivery, organization and range of topics. Individual abstracts and posters should emphasize how they will benefit other doctoral students.
We will provide refreshments and lunch on the day. Places are limited.
Submission deadline: 5th April 2013
Notification of acceptance: Early May 2013
