Research Committee on Sociological Theory (RC16) Conference

Between progress and apocalypse:
sociological theory in the twenty-first century

2–4 July 2020
Masaryk University, Brno, Czech Republic

call for papers

The aim of the conference is to identify symptomatic motifs of our recent historical and intellectual situation which embraces radical visions of social change. Both established and alternative theoretical strategies are confronted by disruptions of institutional and discursive frameworks initiated by powerful technological transformations, growing social diversity and reoccurring patterns of populist political mobilization.


We regret to inform you that the local organising committee and the co-Presidents of RC16 have made the decision to postpone the mid-term conference .We made this difficult decision due to the ongoing and escalating health risks and internal travel disruption caused by the Covid19 virus.
