Call for Abstracts | ERGOMAS 15th Biennial Conference – Deadline: December 10

Deadline: December 10, 2018

The European Research Group on Military and Society (ERGOMAS) is organizing its biennial conference on military and society hosted by the ISCTE.- University Institute of Lisbon in Lisbon, Portugal (https://www.iscte-iul.pt/). Conference dates are June 17-21, 2019.

The Oxford English dictionary declared ‘post-truth’ the word of the year in 2016, defining it as “relating or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” While there are many good reasons for social scientists to have a critical view of such generalizing concepts, the idea of post-truth captures important challenges to the way knowledge is built in contemporary societies and invites a reflection on scientific processes and research practices. Where does the study of the military stand in relation to such challenges? To what extent have military researchers been addressing the theoretical, methodological, and ethical dimensions of research in a ‘post-truth’ society? How can the existing knowledge, methods and techniques be used to examine the ever changing relationship between the military and society? These are some of the questions to be addressed in the next ERGOMAS Conference, as well as research across the broader domains covered by the ERGOMAS Working Groups.

The conference will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, at ISCTE-University Institute of Lisbon (ISCTE-IUL). ISCTE-IUL is one of the three public universities in Lisbon, focused on Social Sciences, Management and Technologies. It is located in the northern part of the city, close to the city center, between the metro stations ‘Entrecampos’ and ‘Cidade Universitária’ (address: Av. das Forças Armadas, 1649-026 Lisboa). The venue is within easy reach of many hotels and is served by a good network of public transportation (http://www.iscte-iul.pt ).
