39th World Congress - Conference: "Sociology at the Crossroads"

Welcome to the 39th World Congress of the International Institute of Sociology

http://www.iisoc. org/iis2009

The 39th World Congress of the International Institute of Sociology will take place at Yerevan State University, Yerevan, Armenia, Thursday afternoon, June 11 - Sunday, June 14, 2009.

The theme of the Congress is: “Sociology at the Crossroads�?

The five previous World Congresses of the IIS have highlighted dilemmas of human existence and societal institutions in the contemporary world. They have examined problems of social existence amidst processes of globalization, cooperation and violent conflict. They have been conducted in the spirit which guided the formation of the IIS, namely that of an engagement and encounter between a variety of theoretical positions among members of a truly international community of scholars.

The 39th World Congress will reaffirm that spirit. It will have three broad foci, namely questions concerning the way sociology can arrive at a reformulated understanding of dilemmas of humanity in the contemporary era, including the nature of war and violence, of political order and states and state-like entities, of religious and cultural encounters, of processes of collective memories, traumas and reconciliations, and of shifting conceptions of law, legal regulation, human rights and international order.

The Congress will also highlight cutting-edge theoretical advances in sociology and neighbouring disciplines as well as teaching and curricular developments of sociology and social science in general in universities in the future.

The structure of the Congress is straightforward. The Congress will open on Thursday afternoon, June 11, with two plenary sessions. Each morning of the three following days, June 12-14, there will be two plenary sessions. The afternoons will be devoted to sessions proposed and organized by participants themselves.

The 39th World Congress of the IIS is jointly sponsored by YSU and the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study (SCAS).
