Forthcoming Events

Dear participants to the BSA Bourdieu Study Group 2020 Conference on Educational Transitions and Social Inequalities. We hope this message finds you well, in spite of the sanitary crisis.

As you all know, due to the COVID-19 we had to cancel the planned Conference in early July 2020. We have been thinking in different possibilities to organise the postponed Conference, either face-to-face, wholly online, or in some hybrid mode. However, we do believe that ruing the conference face to face is the most suitable option, due to academic, organisational and personal reasons.

In order to ensure the face-to-face modality, the postponed Conference will take place in Barcelona at the beginning of July 2021.

As authors with accepted abstracts and symposia for the 2020 Conference you will be invited to confirm your participation in the new Conference and to update your proposals if you need to do so. Simultaneously we will set up a whole new calendar that will be communicated to all of you in September 2020.

In the meanwhile, we wish you all a very good summer and we hope you stay safe.
