Dear Colleagues,


The deadline for abstract submissions for ESA Research Network 15’s Midterm conference has been extended to enable you to participate in our upcoming meeting at Coral Bay Hotel, Paphos, Cyprus between May 5th and 6th, 2022.


The extended deadline is now January 24th, 2022.


Our theme for this conference is “Global Sociology: theory and practice in the 21st century”. We welcome submissions on, but not limited to, policies and policymaking in a globalized world; the role of climate change and exogenous shocks such as pandemics on the formation of national and international policies; international migration with particular emphasis on Europe; decolonial/postcolonial perspectives; culture, identity, and cosmopolitanism in a changing world; methodological and theoretical developments in global and transnational sociology; and glocalization.


We have confirmed four fantastic keynote speakers. These are: Anna Amelina (BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg, Germany), Victor Roudometof, (University of Cyprus, Cyprus), Mari Toivanen (University of Helsinki, Finland) and Mike Zapp (University of Luxembourg, Luxembourg).
