University of the Aegean, Island of Rhodes, Greece, 18-21 July 2006
The conference will examine the nature of disciplinary and interdisciplinary practices across the social sciences, as well as the relation of the social to the natural sciences, applied sciences and the professions. The focus of papers will range from the finely grained and empirical (research practices and results exemplifying one or more disciplines), to wide-ranging multi-disciplinary and transdisciplinary practices, to perspectives on knowledge and method. One of the featured themes of the 2006 conference will be interdisciplinary perspectives on gender.
I would particularly like to invite you to respond to the conference call for papers. Presenters may choose to submit written papers for consideration before or after the conference in the fully refereed International Journal of the Interdisciplinary Social Sciences, to be launched shortly. If you are unable to attend the conference in person, virtual registrations are also available which allow you to submit a paper for refereeing and possible publication in the journal, and give you access to the electronic version.
The next round in the call for papers (a title and short abstract) closes on 15 May 2006. Full details of the conference, including an online call for papers form, are to be found at the conference website – http://www.SocialSciencesConference.com
We look forward to receiving your proposals and hope you will be able to join us in Rhodes in July 2006.
