Forthcoming ISA Congresses

CALL FOR SESSIONS, ISA CONGRESS 2023, MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA
RESEARCH COMMITTEE IN CLINICAL SOCIOLOGY (RC46)

After more than two years of online-only conferences, we are happy to announce that we are now in the early stages of planning for the ISA World Congress that will take place in Melbourne, Australia, from June 25 to July 1 2023. The conference will take a hybrid format (an in-person and virtual component). The theme of the Congress is Resurgent Authoritarianism: The Sociology of New Entanglements of Religions, Politics, and Economies.

We are asking for your participation in developing the RC46 programme for the World Congress. The first step is the Call for Sessions which will open for online submission via the Confex platform on May 2 and close on May 31, 2022, at 24:00 GMT. The second is the Call for Abstracts which will open for online submission via the Confex platform on July 1 and close on September 30, 2022, at 24:00 GMT. Based on our membership, the Research Committee in Clinical Sociology (RC-46) is allowed to arrange a maximum of 18 sessions at the World Congress. Each session lasts 110 minutes and can accommodate up to five papers leaving time for collective discussion.

We invite you to consider acting as a session organiser and submit a proposal for a session. We are particularly interested in sessions with research topics involving an open call for papers that would attract scholars from across the globe. You can organise your sessions in English, French or Spanish or combine these languages. The Call for Sessions link is now open on the Confex platform. Submit your 250-word proposal here: https://isaconf.confex.com/isaconf/wc2023/cfs.cgi. Click “Research Committees” and then “RC46 Clinical Sociology.” The hard deadline is May 31, 24:00 GMT.

For further information about the conference, please consult https://www.isasociology.org/en/conferences/world-congress/melbourne-2023


I look forward to seeing lots of proposed sessions on the RC46 website!

XX ISA World Congress of Sociology 2023

Resurgent Authoritarianism: The Sociology of New Entanglements of Religions, Politics, and Economies

The global rise of authoritarianism, as well as populism, xenophobia, and racism, makes our task as sociologists more crucial than ever. This dilemma is assisted by the gradual symbolic thickening of public culture through combinations of extreme nationalist and religious fervour.

What is the best way to analyze global resurgent authoritarianism? In addition to dealing with the scars of the colonial era, a postcolonial approach should be supplemented with another approach; we need to find ways to diagnose and resist this resurgence. This approach should take into account how authoritarianism affects not only our societies but also our knowledge production. The self-centred and unspoken have become more important than the told and argued. We are concerned not only with the hard authoritarianism that heralds the brutalization of society and politics, but also the soft authoritarianism that often thrives in the shadow of neoliberalism, as the state moves deftly in the open or in secret to devise modes of governance that shore up its power against popular discontent.

A special interest of our Congress is how to disaggregate the Western, but also sociological, assumption of secularism as inherent in modern society and at the same time analytically dissociate the state from religion. While this separation is still a crucial pathway toward democracy and citizenship, the process needs to be problematized. We particularly look forward to discussing the promising avenues of inquiry within sociology and related disciplines about what has been termed ‘post-secular societies’ and ‘multiple secularities’.

Thus the XX ISA World Congress of Sociology will focus on how sociologists worldwide can (and do) contribute to the understanding of the resurgent authoritarianism and analyze the new entanglements of religions, politics, and economies. It will also focus on how sociologists engage (physically and critically) in the formidable social movements we are witnessing today in different parts of the world and in a renascent civil society.

The XX ISA World Congress of Sociology in Melbourne, Australia, June 25-July 1, 2023 will be in a hybrid format. Further details will be provided in due course.
