Engaging Tactics: Sociology and the Public

  • Location:
    Goldsmiths, University of London, New Cross, London, SE14 6NW , GB

Engaging tactics is a two-day post-graduate/early career researchers conference being held at Goldsmiths’ Department of Sociology on Monday, April 30th, and
Tuesday, May 1st, 2012. The conference aims to question the engagement of critical social sciences with both research participants and (emerging) publics. It encourages site and tactic specific presentations, performances and interventions
and provides a space for the exploration of possible modes of engagement.

The conference includes a round table discussion with academics from Goldsmiths’ Sociology Department as well as a key-lecture and practical workshop with Prof. Dr. Claudia Mitchell (McGill), which aims at elaborating
and curating a group exhibition on “engaging tactics”.

The conference is organised by Anna Bull, Katharina Eist, Miranda Iossifidis, Brian McShane and Christian von Wissel on behalf of Goldsmiths’ Sociology Department Postgraduate Research Community in collaboration with the British Sociological Association (BSA) and Goldsmiths’ Method Lab.
