WORKING THE INTERACTIONIST TRADITION
Contributions, Legacies, and Prospects
The University of Salford, Manchester
MediaCityUK Campus 29–31 July 2015
We welcome submissions from scholars using interactionist approaches
in established fields including communication, crime and
deviance, education, embodiment, emotion, health and illness,
identity, organisations and work, and urban life—as well as from
those working in newer areas, such as digital cultures, or those
deploying innovative methods and techniques.
To include a wider range of sessions the call for papers has been
extended to 1st June 2015.
The MediaCityUK Campus is at the heart of six global BBC
departments and a mass of independent creative, digital and media
organisations. It is a short walk to the Lowry theatre and gallery,
Imperial War Museum North and the Manchester United football
ground. There are many shops, bars, and restaurants nearby.
Interactionism has a distinguished record as a vigorous way of
investigating the diversity, richness and complexity of contemporary
social life. This will be a truly interdisciplinary forum for those
using interactionist approaches to understand the social and
cultural realities of contemporary societies.
