CALL FOR PAPERS
General information about the 6th European Conference of Sociology is located at the website http://www.um.es/ESA.
The theme of the Conference is "Ageing Societies, New Sociology". As our Research Network focusses on "methods", our sessions will not only deal with the conference theme but we welcome any presentation of research which is based on qualitative methods or which is discussing issues of qualitative methods.
As of now, the following sessions have been proposed :
ADDITIONAL SESSIONS : Members of the 'Qualitative Methods' research network and indeed all researchers in these and cognate areas are invited to submit additional proposals for topics for sessions.
All in all, 8 sessions are planned. Based on the number of abstracts for each session, some sessions may be combined.
As to the above mentioned topics, we are now calling for PROPOSALS FOR PAPERS. Your proposal should be sent as an ABSTRACT in the following format :
