Days of paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters, and colloquia.
Delegates from all over the world who attended the Thirteenth International Conference on Interdisciplinary Social Sciences.
We are living in times that are deeply contradictory. On the one hand, global social phenomena are impacting our local lives. On the other, there is push away from global solutions in the form of various localisms. At times, these may be considered a reactive withdrawal; at other times, a quest for autonomy. But do these movements, reactive or constructive, also represent a retreat from the common issues we face? How do we understand the nature of individual and collective autonomy in our current times? What are we to make of the social today, both as lived reality and speculative imaginary?
The Thirteenth International Conference on Interdisciplinary Social Sciences featured sessions by some of the world's leading thinkers and innovators in the field.
For each conference, a small number of Emerging Scholar Awards are given to outstanding graduate students and emerging scholars who have an active academic interest in the conference area. The Award, with its accompanying responsibilities provides a strong professional development opportunity for early career academics. The 2018 Emerging Scholar Awardees are listed below.
