Conference of the Swedish Sociological Association / Sociologidagarna 2018


Sociologidagarna, the Swedish Sociological Association Conference, is organized every second year and gathers sociologists from all over – and increasingly outside of – Sweden.

During Sociologidagarna, on-going research is presented in thematic working group sessions, current topics are discussed by expert panels in semi-plenaries, and international key-note speakers give lectures on the conference theme.

Sociologidagarna 2018 is hosted by the Department of Sociology at Lund University, and the SSF (Sveriges Sociologförbund).

The conference theme is Sociology in a Polarized world.


Welcome to join us!

All semi-plenaries are open to the public. Please see list below.

Divisions and polarizations are increasingly prevalent in contemporary societies.

They are visible in growing income disparities, divisions between rural and urban areas, between locals and migrants, and also in rifts between the political establishment and popular sentiments. 

The recent rise of populist movements and social upheavals have challenged the liberal consensus and power blocs that have shaped the last decades in many societies. These contenders may also unleash social forces imbued with xenophobia and anti-democratic sentiments.

The discipline has tools able to address the problem of growing polarizations, and its ’voice’ in public debates is critical in this changing social landscape. This conference invites sociologists to take part in a critical examination of the current polarizing conditions – to include their empirical validity and intersectionality – as well as in a reassessment of sociology’s contributions to the public debate.
