Groups, Movements, Change: Perspectives from Sociology and Phenomenology

Are sociology and phenomenological philosophy competing research paradigms, or can they be complementary and fruitfully enrich one another? Despite the rich tradition of dialogue between sociology and phenomenology, the exchange today seems stalled. This research workshop brings together an international group of scholars to examine the potential for cross-fertilization between these two fields and present their own perspectives on some of the central issues of social sciences, including the emergence and behaviour of social groups, collective emotions, and social change more generally.

The workshop will be a hybrid event, so it will be possible to participate both physically and online. The deadline for physical registration has passed, but it is still possible to participate online via this Zoom link.
