Please see this exciting opportunity to participate in our conference event at IRSA 2020.
As part of the IRSA 2020 XV World Congress of Rural Sociology in Cairns, Australia (July 7-8 2020), RC40(The Research Committee on Sociology of Agriculture and Food of the International Sociological Association) invites abstracts for a mini-conference on the theme of "transdisciplinary visual methodologies." We’re also hosting a separate graduate student workshop for students exploring and using visual methods.
These unique events will bring together diverse visual and community-based scholars, activists, and artists working in the area of the sociology of food and agriculture to explore the role — and facilitate the use — of visuals (photos, videos and graphics) in community-engaged research. In particular, we invite submissions with an emphasis on the role of visuals for food movements in bridging the urban-rural divide.
We welcome abstract submissions of 300 words or less by Nov. 1, 2019. Please indicate if you intend to participate in the mini-conference or the graduate student workshop. Up to six papers will be considered for a special issue in a journal. For more information, please visit our webpage.
