"Der Koerper als Forschungsproblem": Zweiter Workshop des Arbeitskreises 'Soziologie des Koerpers'

Es soll es nicht um die Frage gehen, inwieweit der Koerper ein von der Soziologie vernachlaessigtes Thema ist, sondern darum, wie sich die Dimension des Koerperlichen in sozialer Interaktion methodisch adaequat erfassen laesst. - Die Referate sollen keine Projektpraesentation im ueblichen Sinne sein. Nicht die Ergebnisse sollen im Vordergrund stehen, sondern die methodischen Aspekte, vor allem die methodischen Probleme. Die Organisation des Treffens als Workshop sollte woertlich genommen werden: in der Diskussion ein genaueres Verstaendnis der Problemstellung zu erarbeiten, deren Konturen zunaechst noch unscharf sind.

International Conference: "Cinema and the City"

Anmerkungen: The conference will examine the history of representations of urban space in narrative cinema (broadly defined), the relationship between cinema and architecture, the modern and post-modern city, urban alienation, social conflict, and escapism. It will analyse the city in narrative cinema as a site of play, wonder and magic, social cohesion and productivity, focusing, for example, on the suburban family home as a zone of stability and harmony. It will also examine the city in narrative cinema as a space of ideological conflict between, for example, corporate, military and governmental power and radical social formations, subcultures and the underclass.
Deadline: Papers will be of 30 minutes duration each. Abstracts of 300 words should be addressed to the conference organisers at the following address, to arrive no later than 20 November 1998:

International Spring Symposium: "On Human Nature: Biological Approaches and Philosophical Reflections"

Tagungsort: European Academy Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler GmbH
Anmerkungen: In the last century the industrial revolution, followed by several cultural and societal upheavals, marked the beginning of fundamental changes of our understanding of ourselves as "human beings". Now, at the end of the millennium, it seems that the authority for supplying explanations of human nature has shifted from philosophy and humanities to the natural sciences. In the public mind, it is particularly biology and medicine that are assumed to supply an almost unlimited access to "objective facts" on human evolution, history, and existence. - Our Symposium aims investigate such claims. We want to discuss the newest approaches in biology and medicine, and reflect on their philosophical and ethical foundations and consequences, respectively.

The British Sociological Association Annual Conference

Anmerkungen: The momentous social changes of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, which originally gave rise to sociology, have continued to shape and cleave it into rival theoretical and empirical approaches. But does this diversity necessarily mean disarray? Ought we to recognise that in a 'postmodern world' there can only be sociologies? Should we be embracing diverse analyses of culture and discourse, and focusing on biographies, identities and subjectivities? Or should sociology pay more heed to its core classical strength: providing a radical and progressive analysis of the logic of global capitalism in charting the axes of class, status, gender and ethnicity? Is there a case for continuity or change in terms of sociology's core concerns, key concepts, theories and methodologies?
We welcome papers, with any theoretical or empirical focus, in any area of sociology, which address these issues.
Deadline: Abstracts of no more that 250 words should be sent to the address below by no later than 30 September 1998. You should include with your abstract your name, institutional affiliation, full postal address, 'phone and fax numbers, and an e-mail address.

1999 Socialist Scholars Conference: "Freedom, too, the long sought, we still seek, the freedom of life and limb, the freedom to work and think, the freedom to love and aspire." (W.E.B. DuBois)

Tagungsort: Borough of Manhattan Community College, City University of New York, 199 Chambers Street, New York City
Anmerkungen: The conference asks what role freedom has in popular movements and those of the Left, in particular. Philosophers have considered freedom in abstract forms; social movements have shaped it through practice. Both have struggled over its meaning. Urbanization, the growth of knowledge, and technological change have laid the foundations for and given urgency to movements of justice, equality, and recognition preconditions for a flowering of freedom. Yet the unfolding of freedom has its dialectical opposite: financial instability, a resurgence of racism, nativism, and fundamentalist movements, a flight from solidarity to consumerism. - We encourage wide-ranging discussion and debate.
Deadline: for panel submissions: March 1, 1999. To submit a panel, please include a panel title, a list of panelists with only one affiliation per panelist, an address with email for each panelist, a sponsoring organization (if applicable) and a contact person with address, phone number, and email.

"Nationalism, Identity and Minority Rights": Sociological and Political Perspectives

Anmerkungen: There is currently a marked increase in the claims of a wide range of minority groups for greater representation and inclusion in modern nation-states, not least in western liberal democracies. Moreover, these claims have brought into question the very assumptions of individual autonomy, equality, national culture and citizenship, and universalism upon which modern nation-states have historically been based. This conference is concerned to examine the social and political legitimacy of such identity claims.
