Call for paper
The fifth Conference of European Society of Studies in Symbolic Interaction explores the significance of symbolic interactionism in contemporary social sciences and humanities. How is the tradition of symbolic interactionism applied and elaborated in contemporary research on social processes such as communication, identity, and everyday life? Which theoretical and methodological challenges does symbolic interactionism face in the light of the social transformation of modernity, and the following developments within the social sciences and humanities?
A particular focus of the conference is the role of symbolic interactionism in helping to understand the influence of social transformations on communication, identity and everyday life. The conference invites presentations offering analyses of contemporary mind, self or society from a symbolic interactionist perspective, as well as presentations that consider theoretical and methodological changes within the perspective of symbolic interactionism over time, as well as challenges it is faced with in contemporary society. Further, the conference features a research commitment to qualitative methods and ethnographic studies in line with their growing popularity and importance in modern explorations of the social world.
