The European Sociological Association (ESA) aims to facilitate sociological research, teaching and communication between sociologists as well as between sociologists and other scientists, and to give sociology a voice in European affairs. Its focus is the development of sociological knowledge, by the organisation of a biennual conference with more than 3000 participants from all across the world.

We would like to enlarge our network through other sociological non-profit associations and societies and introduce our work to even more colleagues. For example, ESA provides a platform for dialogue with other National Associations during the NA Council Meetings organised once a year. We would be delighted to invite you to join ESA as a member and enjoy all the benefits available. By joining ESA you can reach a large and international group of sociologists working within different fields, organised in 37 Research Networks.

The 14th ESA Conference will be held in Manchester (UK) on August 20-23, 2019. In the attachment of this message, we are sending: i) our flyer – which you can order and distribute among your colleagues and members and ii) our Twitter banner – a picture can change everything! ESA has a brand-new online publication – The European Sociologist – and contributions are welcome! Don’t hesitate and contact us for more details about the benefits, the conference or The European Sociologist. Join us on Twitter and visit our website.

We are hoping for your support in spreading our ESA 2019 Call for Papers, with a deadline extension until February 15, 2019. You can also submit your contribution here! Thank you for your help and interest!

With best wishes,
The ESA Office

From the President’s message to all ESA members:
“Many of us would wish that Brexit wasn’t going to happen in 2019, but if it is then we should see this conference in Manchester as a statement that European Sociology works across and beyond boundaries and borders, and make it an occasion to think about research and relations beyond Europe, as well as what it means to belong to Europe.” – Prof. Sue Scott

Call for Papers
