Welcome to the ‘Contemporary Societies in Motion’ conference

27-28 May 2021

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we are excited to invite you to join us virtually on 27-28 of May 2021.

New dynamics of change within the context of so-called ‘liquid’ modernity have impacted many aspects of social life – including deviance, crime and social control. Concurrently, disciplines from a wide range of fields including criminology, anthropology, sociology, political sciences, development studies, media studies, and many more, have adapted to these shifts – and have often done so by developing new methods to reveal, interpret and understand both their obvious and hidden aspects. Unsurprisingly, a great many methodological and epistemological issues have been raised by these adaptations, triggering considerable academic debate. Such discussion, for instance, concerns how we may study new forms of crime and deviance – as well new responses to them. In addition, the changing terms of researchers’ engagement, the risks and ethics of doing research on deviance, and its formal and/or informal regulation, have provoked serious reflection– suggesting reflexivity concerning our own work, as well as the research methods we use (including ethnography, visual, and participatory forms), is of paramount importance – and requires further development.

Further, the COVID-19 pandemic has created new challenges for science, society and policy. Under pandemic circumstances it is important to ensure that scientific activities will continue their course of bringing freshness to our creativity and thinking. Therefore, the Organizing Committee has decided to switch our original conference schedule to an online environment in order to ensure the safe participation of all speakers and attendees – and to comply with global recommendations related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The National Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA), the National Center for Social Research (EKKE), the Center for the Study of Crime (CSC) and the ESC Working Group on Qualitative Research Methodologies and Epistemologies are pleased to invite you to a joint online conference titled “Contemporary societies in motion: pioneering qualitative research methods in the study of deviance and social control”.
