Monday 10 June 2019
12 noon to 5 p.m.

The establishment of the BSA new materialisms study group in 2018 reflects the growing interest among sociologists in this approach, both theoretically and as an ontological perspective to inform empirical research.  This one-day symposium is a showcase of members' research, and will also discuss the future development of the study group's work within the BSA.


Ten papers: speakers include Nikki Fairchild, Eva Giraud, Greg Hollin and Carol Taylor.
