15th ESA Conference Barcelona 2021 - "Sociological Knowledges for Alternative Futures"

On August 31 - September 3, 2021, the 15th ESA Conference Sociological Knowledge for Alternative Future will be held. Over 3800 participants from all over the world are expected to join the Conference, organized by the European Sociological Association. Due to the epidemic, this year's edition will take place fully online.

During the Conference, the European Sociological Association offers Plenary, Semi-Plenary and Midday sessions, each with two selected speakers. All sessions will offer the opportunity to engage in core debates, with the different formats including time for open discussion. ESA's 37 Research Networks offer so-called regular RN sessions and Joint Sessions with four paper presentations per session. Research Streams also organize sessions under the same format.


Numerous representatives of the Institute of Sociology of the Jagiellonian University will also actively participate in this Conference, which is very important for the European sociological community. They will act as Session Chairs at the Semi-Plenaries (SP11: The Rise of Authoritarianism in Central Eastern Europe with Kim Lane Scheppele and Grzegorz Ekiert, organised by Kaja Gadowska) as well as co-organizers of the Midday & Evening Specials (EV04: Solidarity in Poland and Anti-Authoritarianism in Belarus: What can a 21st Century Social Movement for Democratization Learn from a 20th Century one? with Jan Kubik and Tatsiana Kulakevich, organized by Sebastian Koos, Irina Tartakovskaja and Kaja Gadowska - also Chair of the event). 

The employees of the Institute of Sociology of the Jagiellonian University are also coordinators of some Research Network Sessions (one of the coordinators of RN37 - Urban Sociology is Marta Smagacz-Poziemska) and RN's Joint Sessions (one of the coordinators of JS_RN01_RN21: Quantitative Analysis in Aging Research is Jolanta Perek-Białas; JS_RN01_RN37: Urban Ageing: Towards an enhanced spatial perspective - the coordinator is Marta Smagacz-Poziemska; the coordinators of JS_RN12_RN16: Interplays between the Covid-19 pandemic and the climate crisis are Aleksandra Wagner and Maria Świątkiewicz-Mośny).
