Decolonising Families and Relationships Studies with Prof Vrushali Patil, Dr Shannon Philip, Prof Allen Kim, Dr Mona Roehm took place on 26 November 2020. Please check out our 'webinar series' tab for further info about the series
We welcome ideas from our members for events. Please contact Julie Walsh to discuss.
Some suggested formats:
The day conferences encourage critical dialogue on key concepts, notably 'families', 'intimacies' and 'personal relationships', exploring the usefulness of these concepts in making sense of contemporary practices. The day conferences typically feature presentations from leading and emerging scholars, with structured group discussion. Previous day conferences have been published as Special Issue journals.
The workshops will provide a dialogic environment where current and proposed research ideas can be presented. They will aim to build up connections between established and 'next generation' researchers. Workshops will be jointly co-ordinated with University based research centres around the UK.
BSA Annual Conference
The BSA Annual Conference has been reformatted and is now structured around a substantive conference theme and concurrent Study Group strands. Group conveners are responsible for the selection of conference abstracts, including a diversity of research across the fields of study. We convene a Families and Relationships Study Group meeting at the conference, attempting to extend membership of the group and to allow us to reflect on our scheduled programme of activities.
