Entity, Construction, Relation: Critical Approaches to Time/Space, the
State and Knowledge Production in Sociology and Social Anthropology
Graduate Conference
www.ceu.hu/soc_anth_conference

Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology
Central European University
June 11-13 2010, Budapest

Substantivist, constructivist, and relational perspectives on the social
world have coexisted more or less harmoniously within social sciences
since the beginning of their institutionalisation. However,
epistemological positioning means making strong assumptions about the
nature of social reality and about our possibility to know anything about
it. Our conference aims to be an open forum for discussing the advantages
and the limits of these perspectives, and their implications when adopted
in the study of three selected core topics in social sciences: time/space,
the state and knowledge production.

We invite young scholars from wide variety of disciplines to present in
one of three panels: “Space for Time/Time for Space”; “The State,
Citizenship, and Transnational Flows”; “Measure for Measure: Knowledge,
Culture, and the Third Wave Marketization.” We welcome both empirical and
theoretical papers dealing with these topics. Given the theme of the
conference, papers demonstrating epistemological awareness and
transparency are especially encouraged.
The conference is organised by PhD students from the Department of
Sociology and Social Anthropology at the Central European University. It
will take place between the 11th–13th of June 2010 in Budapest. We have
limited funds to cover travel and accommodation, please indicate your
travel costs when applying.

*Please send your abstract and a short CV by April 1st to:
**[log in to unmask]*<[log in to unmask]>
*Successful applicants will be notified by April 10th at the latest. The
deadline for the final paper is May 15th to allow for circulation prior to
the conference.*

TIME/SPACE PANEL: “Space for Time/Time for Space”

Keynote Speaker: Professor Andrew Abbott, University of Chicago

The spatial turn in social sciences heralded the introduction of
space-derived concepts and metaphors in thinking about the complexities of
of a spatiality-differentiated world. More recently time and temporality
has also reasserted its importance in the work of scholars across a
wide-variety of disciplines and subject matters. In what ways does the
appreciation of the temporal-spatial qualities of our research subject
help us? Is the conceptual separation of time and space artificial? Can we
understand them together? We welcome anthropological and sociological
contributions of an empirical and theoretical nature that explicitly take
space-based or time-based approaches to their chosen subject.

Topics might include but should by no means be limited to: everyday life
rhythms, urban spatial-temporal segregation/separation, time/space or
space/time conquests related to global capitalism, phenomenological
approaches to time and space, modernity’s colonization of time and space,
the spatial-temporality of place, the body’s relation to time and space.

STATE PANEL: “The State, Citizenship, and Transnational Flows”

Keynote Speaker: Professor Jonathan Friedman, Lund University and École
des hautes études en sciences sociales

The panel focuses on the historical transformations of the relationship
between the state and citizenship, especially (but not exclusively) within
the framework of the major processes related to financial and cultural
globalization.
Our aim is to bring together young scholars who try to contribute to the
broad theoretical debates around: transnational versus global,
deterritorialization versus reterritorialization, disappearing versus
reconfiguring states within global capital flows, universalism versus
cultural difference, social and human rights, transnational social
justice, reconfiguring class and ethnic relations, global versus national
citizenship, and the making of political subjects.
The papers can address these issues and other related ones in different
ways, from theoretical approaches to highly historically grounded
empirical research. As the general theme of the conference suggests,
papers which briefly discuss the implications of the scholar’s
epistemological position on different steps of the research process,
including the questions posed and the findings, are especially welcome.

CULTURE & KNOWLEDGE PANEL: "Measure for Measure": Knowledge, Culture, and
the Third Wave Marketization

Keynote Speaker: Professor Jean-Louis Fabiani, Central European University

This panel circumscribes the field of culture and knowledge, the
immaterial production of things and dissemination and consumption in
contemporary settings. It centres on the current relations and
amalgamations of culture and knowledge in the spheres of politics and the
economy.

Hence, we welcome research and theoretical papers that grapple with the
topics of: cultural transformation in a globalized world, commodification
and de-commodification of knowledge and culture, the intellectual property
regime, Creative Commons, connections of culture and especially popular
culture with various sorts of populism, nationalism and cosmopolitanism,
the dissemination and consumption of such cultural products, connections
between new cultural items and power.

We also welcome ethnographic studies of communities that form and develop
around the production and consumption of knowledge and culture, which deal
with the social and political significance of collective experience,
identity and affect as they come about in physical and virtual spaces.
