Capitalism, Solidarities, Subjectivities"
13th Conference of the European Sociological Association
29 August – 1 September 2017
1st February 2017
ISA RC14 proposes for the 13th ESA conference (August 29th to September 1st 2017) a joint session with ESA RN18 on the theme “Theatricalization of Politics in Contemporary Media and Arts”. Conference venue: Panteion University, Athens – Greece. Abstract submission deadline: 1st February 2017.
Theatricalization is an important aspect of social life in general, of political life in particular. Aspects of the political scene and action are given in mass and new media dis-course as well as in mass cultural productions (as “narratives” of the contemporary society). Given that people understand reality first of all on the symbolic level, the analysis of these narratives is an ideal approach of the meaning given to politics and communication nowadays: images of the economic crisis, of the migrants and/or refugees, of identities (given by media discourse or by mass cultural productions), constitute a basic imprint of the expressions of the current “social myths”. In this sense we invite papers based on the analysis of emblematic media events or on the political “stories” narrated in TV serials and cinema.
Abstract submission deadline: 1st February 201.
