Call for Papers on Young People, Technology and Political Engagement

The British Sociological Association’s Youth Study Group in association with the University of Surrey’s Institute of Advanced Studies and The Social Policy Association are calling for papers on the theme of “Young People, New Technologies and Political Engagement” for a conference at the University of Surrey, 24-25 July 2007. The conference intends to contribute to the development of research and theory in this crucial area by providing a forum for scholars from across the world to share the findings of empirical and theoretical work, discuss the policy implications of their research, and strengthen their international and inter-disciplinary ties. It aims to bring together leading figures in the subject area from across the globe as well as to offer a valuable international forum for emerging projects and individuals. Keynote speakers include Prof. Lance Bennett (Center for Communication and Civic Engagement, University of Washington); Prof. Stephen Coleman (Institute of Communication Studies, University of Leeds) and Dr. Anita Harris (Department of Sociology, Monash University). Please send abstracts of up to 250 words to Dr Rachel Brooks at the University of Surrey (R.Brooks@surrey.ac.uk) by 23 February 2007 at the latest. Please include full contact details with your proposal. For further information, please contact Dr. Rachel Brooks or Dr. Paul Hodkinson (P.Hodkinson@surrey.ac.uk). They are able to offer up to six grants (of up to £200) to speakers traveling to the event from outside the UK. If you would like to be considered for such a grant, please make this clear when sending your abstract.
