Streetlife Symposium, 15 Sept 2015, University of Kent

The street has long been a key laboratory for studies of social life,
from the roots of urban sociology in the pioneering ethnographies of
the Chicago School through to the diverse studies considering the
performative, affective and non-representational nature of social
practice through in situ examination of street etiquette and
encounter. For all this, the street remains only loosely defined, and
sometimes disappears from view in studies in which social action is
privileged over material context.

This one-day symposium accordingly sets out to explore the perennial
appeal of the streets as a site of sociological and geographical
inquiry. It will focus on whether it is still right to privilege the
street in super-diverse and increasingly virtual societies, and will
question the methods by which we seek to apprehend the rhythms and
rituals of streetlife.

Keynote speakers include Sophie Watson, Suzanne Hall and Monica Degan,
with panel contributions and responses from Alasdair Jones, Steve
Millington, Oli mould, Nick Dines, Phil Mizen, Helen Wilson, Myria
Georgiou, Sabina Andron, Giulia Carabelli, Phil Hubbard, Dawn Lyon and
Peter Hatton.

This event, sponsored by The Sociological Review, will be held at the
Medway campus of the University of Kent, 15 Sept 2015, 1000-1800

The event is free, but registration is required as places are limited.
