Lancaster Sociology Summer Conference

I’m passing on this note on for the organisers of an ‘intellectual party’ at Lancaster University in the summer of 2008.

Organised by Lancaster Sociology postgraduates, the summer conference, 7th and 8th July 2008, is a great opportunity to present your work, collaborate with other PhD and Masters students, participate in practical workshops, and have a lot of fun.

You will be able to contribute to innovative ‘sociological challenges’ involving Andrew Sayer, Elizabeth Shove, John Urry, Tim Dant and others. You are also invited to stay until 9th July for another sociological expedition exploring new aspects of the world-famous Lake District, or for informal workshops on ideas and methods. Come and share your research and enjoy Lancaster Sociology’s post-disciplinary atmosphere. See for pictures and the programme from last year’s summer conference.

If you are interested in joining us and presenting a paper on your research, please visit and send your abstract using the online form by the 31st January 2008. All topics are welcome.

The registration fee for non-Lancaster students is £85. This includes refreshments, dinner and lunches during the two day conference. If you have any queries please contact Allison Hui,

We look forward to meeting you. Please remember to submit your abstract by 31st January 2008!

Kind Regards
