"How research is done, innovatively and creatively"

(Re)Creating: Methodologies, Practices, Concepts New Scholars Symposium

1-3 September 2005, Goldsmiths College, University of London

The purpose of this symposium is to address how methodologies are recreated in the process of doing a PhD. It will explore the challenges and opportunities of working in innovative ways which draw on established methodologies and the extent to which new practices and concepts are reshaping the discipline.

The symposium begins from the premise that there is increasing interest in rethinking and reorganising sociological research according to different issues such as time, space, body and image. Although such concepts do not replace traditional issues like gender, race, class, or age, they do recreate the production of sociological knowledge.

A variety of formats will be used to explore these issues including papers, thematic roundtables, practical and conceptual workshops and keynote presentations based around the doing of research.

It will be of interest to new scholars (current PhD students and those who have completed their PhDs in the last five years). The symposium is funded by the ESRC and there will be no charge to participants.

Call for Participants DEADLINE TUESDAY 31 MAY WEDNESDAY 15 JUNE
