In Conversation with Senior Sociologists: Making Connections, Bridging Generations II

Thursday, 14 July 2016: 12:30-14:00
Location: Seminarsaal 10 (Juridicum)

Language: English

This is a 90-minute session which is intended to bring together small groups of junior sociologists into conversation with senior sociologists. The idea is to run 10 such sessions concurrently to enable focussed interactions amongst the group of early career sociologists and a senior sociologist. Each group will also have a moderator/discussant to enable a focussed discussion. This is intended as an in-depth interaction opportunity to hear the experiences of a senior practitioner and ask questions of her/him as well as share the challenges of being a sociologist under current socio-political conditions and those faced by the discipline as well.
