European Sociological Association Research Network - Regional Research Network on Southern European Societies (ESA/RN27)
Mid-term conference on "Social Structures, Culture and Institutions in Southern European Societies"
Department of Political and Social Sciences, University of Catania (4-6 October 2018)
The aim of RN27 is to facilitate sociological research in Southern Europe and of Southern European Communities abroad and to promote communication and cooperation between sociologists and between sociologists and other social scientists interested in the region. Also, we would like to encourage the participation of sociologists from neighboring countries working on common areas, specially the Mediterranean area, the Middle East, and others.
This conference will discuss the challenges and dilemmas of Southern European societies in several strands of research in order to provide an authoritative account of the current situation. Participants are invited to discuss comparative research and specific studies with general implications as a means to understanding Southern European societies at regional and international level.
