CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: Asia Pacific Sociological Association Conference 2022

Asia Pacific Sociological Association Conference 2022: Reimagining Development Futures in the Age of the Anthropocene and the Climate Crisis  

This conference proposes a two-day academic and civic dialogue event that will bring together multiple disciplinary academics and researchers, international and national civil society, and non-governmental organizations, practitioners, and local community groups to discuss multidimensional development amid global environmental changes. Based on the two dominant conceptual frameworks — the Anthropocene and climate change — of the current global environmental crisis, this conference seeks to connect the urgency of the crisis and find the motivation to learn and act upon emerging issues and challenges unprecedented in human history.   

The hybrid event will be held on 28 and 29 October 2022, and is organized and hosted by Chulalongkorn University, in partnership with Ateneo de Manila University, Seisha University, Chiang Mai University, Visayas State University, Sydney University, University of the Philippines Visayas, and the International Sociological Association (ISA) Research Divisions of Health and Society (RC 15) and Clinical/Applied Sociology (RC 46).  

Call for Abstracts. The event organizers are inviting multi-disciplinary academics, researchers and graduate students, practitioners, international, national, and local civil society, non-governmental, and community-based organizations, and community groups to submit abstracts on the six key topics and questions. Accepted abstracts / papers will be presented in parallel sessions on both days. Deadline for submission of abstracts: 1 October 2022; Notification of acceptance: 5 October 2022
