2nd Academy of Sociology Conference: "Digital Societies"

Mittwoch, 25. September 2019
– Freitag, 27. September 2019

University of Konstanz

Academy of Sociology / Universität Konstanz / ETH Zürich

Digitalization is one of the megatrends of our century and affects numerous aspects of social life. The social sciences as well as the public have just begun to study and under-stand the deep structural changes that come with digitalization. Yet, the complex mixture of opportunities and risks in many areas of social life associated with this transformation calls for a more comprehensive and thorough evaluation by the social sciences.

This year’s AS conference therefore calls on researchers to take up this challenge and provide substantive empirical research, methodological discussions, and theoretical contributions on digitalization with respect to all aspects of social life. For details see digitalsocieties2019.net/call-for-papers/.

The conference also reserves slots for contributions that do not explicitly focus on digital societies (open sessions). The conference language is English. We therefore explicitly encourage international scholars to join our conference.
Scholars are requested to submit to submit a full paper or an extended abstract (2-3 pages).
Submissions due: April 30, 2019.
