We are happy to launch the call for Panels for a joint event, the 11th edition of the International Colloquium of Social Sciences and Communication (ACUM 2022) and the National Conference of the Romanian Sociologists Society, hosted by Transilvania University of Brasov, on 27-28 October 2022, in Brasov, Romania.
Extraordinary events take place during our lives, extreme experiences are lived, and unusual decisions are made. As social scientists, we have not lived more challenging times for our profession. There is no field or topic that has not become extraordinary – people work differently, the educational process has suddenly changed its parameters, everyday life is unpredictable, attitudes are strange, the rules are new, political decisions are difficult to understand, communication is paradoxical, violence is at an unusual level, discrimination takes atypical forms and so on. Extraordinary actors and bizarre changes require exceptional social sciences. The conference invites you to contribute to exceptional social science, studying unconventional topics, behaviors and processes that deviate from rules, relationships and institutions that (do not) adapt to the new.
We kindly invite you to submit panel proposals by 15 March 2022, using the online form: https://forms.gle/9dmhxBrGvvpNMCJu6
The tasks for a panel chair include:
– proposing a panel related to the conference theme and attracting relevant contributions
– selecting papers in response to the call for papers
– moderating the panel’s oral presentations
