Conference: "What People Leave Behind. Marks, Traces, Footprints and their Significance for Social Sciences", June 15-16, 2021, online


The conference focuses on a particular but extremely significant theme in the social sciences: the concepts of “footprint” and “trace”. Usually associated with the digital world, the very idea of footprints clearly gives the image of what one leaves behind without being aware of it, a by-product of other (differently focused and oriented) actions that remains empirically imprinted on reality.
The topic of traces will be analyzed in a broad and interdisciplinary way, adopting quantitative and qualitative approaches, from different disciplinary angles: sociology, semiotics, social psychology, anthropology, legal studies, etc.
The conference will host 5 keynote speakers and 80 panelists from more than twenty countries.

Registration is free of charge.
