Travel Information

Crossing multiple spheres of life, the public imagination creates new possibilities for action. A public imagination against structures of violence recognizes that violence exists in multiple forms and is not experienced universally.

This year we seek papers that confront structures of violence in an effort to engage the public imagination. In the spirit of public sociology, we encourage submissions from outside of academia and from related disciplines that speak to the conference theme (e.g., Guantanamo, Newtown, Ferguson, Paris – 11/13/2015, Intimate Partner Violence, Racial Discrimination, Elder neglect, and etc.).

Public sociology is an approach to the study of social problems and structures that transcends the boundaries of academia to engage the public in discourse, political and institutional change, and social empowerment. Public sociologists, in collaboration with activists and policymakers, often turn their lens towards a broad range of public concerns that are rooted in social injustices and inequalities.
