Description

Call for Presenters: Workshop on Studying Civil Society, Thurs 7th June 2018 14.00-17.00, University of York

Civil society is a prominent focus of analysis across the social sciences, but can remain conceptually fuzzy and be challenging to empirically gain traction over. The overall aims of this session are to identify innovative approaches to the study of civil society, and to support PhD candidates’ efforts to design and communicate an approach that advances scholarship in their field of inquiry.

This workshop will provide two lines of investigation into approaches to the study of civil society. In the first session, David Bailey (University of Birmingham) will reflect on the operationalisation of the concept in his recent study of European anti-austerity movements. In the second session, members of the CDD Pathway will outline and receive feedback on their approach to studying civil society.


The Format

Presenters will be provided with a ten-minute slot in which to outline the approach being taken to studying civil society being developed in their research project, with additional time for Q&A and discussion.


Deadlines and application process

The White Rose Doctoral Training Partnership Civil Society, Democracy, and Development Pathway invites doctoral candidates from across the social sciences at the Universities of Hull, Leeds, Manchester Metropolitan, Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam, and York to submit a synopsis (250 words) of the approach to studying civil society being developed in their research project, which provides a sense of literatures, concepts, and themes being incorporated and built on.

Please submit synopses to liam.clegg@york.ac.uk, subject heading ‘Studying Civil Society Workshop’ by Thursday 3rd May, 9.00am. The workshop schedule will be circulated shortly thereafter.

NB. Attendance from non-presenters is strongly encouraged, to foster inter-institutional and inter-disciplinary dialogue and networking.
