Please find below details of the first Activism in Sociology Forum meeting. The Activism in Sociology Forum is part of the British Sociological Association but was set up in order to bring together academics, both within sociology and other disciplines, as well as activists, community groups and others interested in/working on social justice projects. Our aim is to aid people to connect with one another and provide a means of collective action. Moreover we are deeply concerned about the spread of neoliberal thought and the implementation of government policies that increase inequality and disadvantage among the poorest and most vulnerable in society. It is our aim, therefore, to bring together a diverse range of voices to mobilize against this.
Our first event is on Saturday 9 November 2013, Senate House Library, London. We are currently inviting submissions for participation as well as encouraging as many as possible to attend the event and add their ideas and passion to the discussions.
The full call for participation can be read here http://www.britsoc.co.uk/media/57538/ASF_Flyer_091113.pdf
We hope to make this event a busy and lively day of conversation, planning and action. Even if you don’t want to present a formal paper we encourage you to come along and put forward any ideas, problems, theories, etc. The day is free and lunch will be provided. Booking is open on the BSA Events page http://www.britsoc.co.uk/events/KeyEvents.aspx
Please let us know if you have access requirements of any form so that we can accommodate you.
