The final weekend in June a group of PhD students from the department discussed the content, form and objectives of the student conference. Threads rolled out and which are now waiting to be taken on include…

  • ‘pop-sociology’ (complex but accessible)
  • ‘exciting sociology’
  • embracing fiction and fantasy
  • the ‘art’ of sociology
  • ethics of engagement
  • self-reflexivity (first make sure you know your aims from which to engage with the aims of others)
  • boundary crossing (listening to the other is at heart of any engagement)
  • trust and respect
  • movement (mediation, play, network): way-finding and navigation
  • Do-it-yourself politics

Comments and further thoughts are welcome…
