The Social Theory thematic group of TASA and the Contemporary Emotions Research Network (UOW) are thrilled to announce a collaborative workshop on emotions and social theory at the University of Wollongong.
The organisers invite participants to submit abstracts that draw from emotions research and/or social theory as part of an effort to bring these fields into dialogue in mutually beneficial ways. In particular, we encourage abstracts that deal with topics such as reflexivity, inequality, power, structure, praxis, intimacy, media and justice, with particular reference to emotions and social theory.
TASA has generously provided two $300 bursaries to support postgraduates to participate in this workshop. These prizes will be awarded to the two best postgraduate submissions, and can be used to reimburse for travel and participation expenses. (Note: Applicants must be a TASA member to be eligible.)
Registration: $25 (lunch and morning tea will be provided)
Please submit a 250-word abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org by the 18th of August.
