International Conference "The Politics of Inequality and Difference: Critical Approaches in Anthropology and Sociology"
Date: June 12-13, 2009
Deadline: March 31, 2009
Site: Budapest, Hungary
Organiser: Central European University, Budapest, Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology
Topics: The main purpose of the present graduate conference is to initiate a critical discussion of the ways in which the acute problems of inequality and difference are currently theorized and methodologically engaged both inter-disciplinarily, in the fields of sociology and anthropology, and extra-disciplinarily, in relation to policy and decision-making. The scope of the conference is thus wide-ranging inviting theoretically informed, methodologically reflexive and politically aware contributions that engage one or both of these major topics.
Given the broad research interests of both faculty and students special attention will be devoted to a number of topics clustered in the following four panels:
- Ethnicization of poverty;
- Nationalism and its others;
- The politics of space and the ‘right to the city’;
- Governance of inequality.
