Welcome to the website of the 8th midterm Conference of the European Research Network Sociology of the Arts.
The conference will take place at „Babes-Bolyai” University in Cluj-Napoca from 4 to 6 September 2014, and will be conducted in English. The general theme of the conference is Art and its contexts: cross-disciplinary dialogue.
The Research Network Sociology of the Arts is part of the European Sociological Association (ESA). Since 2001, the Network has organised a biennial conference on Sociology of the Arts. The previous midterm conferences took place in Austria (Vienna 2012), United Kingdom (Guildford 2010), Italy (Venice 2008), Germany (Lüneburg 2007), Netherlands (Rotterdam 2004), France (Paris 2003), and United Kingdom (Exeter 2001).
A key aim of these conferences is to promote collaboration and scholarly exchange between scholars of the arts, to support the presentation of new research projects and to offer inspiration for the further development of sociology of the arts.
The Call for proposals has already been released and the deadline is March 15, 2014. The conference registration will be opened at April 1, 2014, and will end in June 30, 2014.
