UPCOMING EVENT

04. ANNUAL BAGSS CONFERENCE

ON "CHALLENGES FOR DIVERSE SOCIETIES"
20 - 21 September, 2017

One key characteristic of today’s societies is their diversity: People with different cultural, ethnical, socioeconomic, educational, occupational, political, religious, and demographic backgrounds meet and interact – sometimes voluntarily, sometimes because they have to. But diversity can also provide challenges for the society as a whole, for groups, and for individuals. Therefore, diverse societies and the challenges they face can be viewed as one of the defining issues that cuts across all social science disciplines.

Keynote and Guest Speaker:
Joscha Legewie, Yale University
Samuel R. Lucas, University of California, Berkeley
Mikael Hjerm, Umeå University
