The Philippine Sociological Society’s Annual conference invites paper presentations on all topics related to contemporary sociological research. The conference is open to academics, practitioners and graduate students. Exceptional papers from undergraduate students are also invited to submit an abstract.
The theme for this year’s conference is Imagined Democracies: Transformations of Power and Knowledge in the Philippine Society. Convened five months after the 2016 National Elections and the pivotal shift in the Philippine educational system with the implementation of the K-12 program, the conference aims to take stock of current and emerging articulations of power, democracy and knowledge in Philippine society. Paper presenters are encouraged to reflect on the ‘future of power’ in the age of inequality, market-driven knowledge production, environmental catastrophe and protracted conflict.
Registration fee costs P3,000 inclusive of 2 lunches and 2 dinners. Reduced rate of P2,500 is available for undergraduate students.
Abstracts are due on 30 July 2016.
