Sociology of Education in Southern Europe: a step forward

Milan, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (Italy) – 25-26-27 May 2021


Sociologia dell’educazione nell’Europa del Sud: un passo avanti
Sociología de la educación en la Europa del Sur: un paso adelante
Sociologia da Educação na Europa do Sul: um passo em frente
Sociologie de l’Education en Europe du Sud : un pas en avant

The first International Conference Sociology of Education in Southern Europe: a step forward (SESE Conference) is the result of an in-progress scientific network among Sociologists of Education in Southern European countries.

The initiative is promoted by the ‘Sociology of Education’ Section of AIS (Associazione Italiana di Sociologia) with: Association Française de Sociologie (Réseau Thématique ‘Sociologie de l’Education et de la Formation’); Associação Portuguesa de Sociologia (Secção de ‘Sociologia da Educação’) and Federación Española de Sociología (Comité de Investigación de ‘Sociología de la Educación’).

The first SESE Conference addresses these general questions:

  • Can we identify common or different educational issues and patterns in Southern European contexts?
  • Can we share interpretive frameworks for a better understanding of education in these societies?
  • Can we define common solutions for the main educational problems?
  • What is the relationship between the social scientists’ location in the South and their research work or their theoretical frame?

During the SESE Conference, invited keynote speakers, together with interested scholars and emerging researchers will contribute to the scientific debate. As the Southern perspective seems not to be consolidated among European Sociologists of Education, the conference has the purpose to go a step forward in this direction, shading light on emerging trends and identifying new issues for the research agenda. It would be also of interest to understand in what ways the sociological professional associations work in the Southern Europe.
