Culture in the World
The Center for Cultural Sociology’s inaugural conference, ‘Culture in the World,’ brings the Center’s diaspora of Senior and Faculty Fellows to New Haven for four days of dialogue and debate at the forefront of research in the field.
Convened by the Center’s Executive Board and Junior Fellows, the conference features six plenary lectures delivered by Senior Fellows, nine regular sessions featuring 20-minute papers by Faculty Fellows, and a day of graduate student papers.
Particular issues and themes this year will include:
- the increasing relevance of culture for institutional research in sociology
- the relationship of cultural sociology to normative critique and political theories of democracy
and sessions focussing on:
- popular culture
- the sociology of art and music
- violence and trauma
- politics and collective identity
- culture and experience
