Financial crisis. Social upheaval. Political unrest. One thing’s for certain: the world is changing. And it’s changing fast.

Be better informed.

This year, we’re offering you the unmissable opportunity to hear from Zygmunt Bauman, who joins our expert panel of keynote speakers for challenging and hard-hitting presentations with Michael Burawoy, Stephen Ackroyd, Rosemary Batt and John Brewer.

And, you won’t want to miss the exclusive screenings of ‘The Trouble with being Human These Days’, a film about the work of Zygmunt Bauman.

We may be talking austerity, but we’re not giving in to it. This will be our most dynamic, challenging, inspiring event yet.

Don’t miss out. Book today.

Whether you’re a postgraduate, researcher, teacher or senior academic, there’s plenty of reasons why our 2012 event is even more unmissable than our last.

Austerity

SOCIOLOGY IN AN AGE OF AUSTERITY

Time for sociology to make its biggest impact yet!

We’re all trying to come to terms with cuts, riots, and all the wider consequences. There’s a lot of opinion out there. But how much substance is there to the debate? The 2012 annual conference promises to be dynamic, fiery, informative, and is definitely not to be missed.

Our themes this year are deliberately broad and all-encompassing, designed to appeal to the entire spectrum of sociologists and stimulate lively debate. We’re assessing the impact of austerity on law, families, education, healthcare, research, and much more. As an academic, a researcher, or a teacher, you are at the heart of the discipline. Your voice is important. Join the finest scholars from across the globe to lead the debate. Policy makers are coming to hear what you – the people with real experience – have to say.

It’s time for sociology to make a defining impact. It’s time for the public to know how important our work is. Help to shape the future of the world around you this year.

We’re now accepting abstracts for this year’s conference, so please take this opportunity to get in touch and contribute to the debate – we’re interested in all angles, all ideas, every argument.

To find out more about the conference, or to submit an extract, please visit our website: http://www.britsoc.co.uk/events/conference/home.htm

The talk may be about austerity, but there’s no limit on thought. We want to show how progress is made. Come and have your say, or just listen to what’s being said, at this year’s conference. It promises to be yet another spectacular meeting of minds that stands to offer something for everyone involved – wherever they stand in the debate.
