Lancaster University, Department of Sociology Intellectual Party 2012
Lancaster Sociology research students would like to invite other PhD students to our annual Intellectual Party in the summer of 2012.
The event will be held on 2-3 July and is a great opportunity to present your work at Lancaster in a friendly and supportive environment. The Intellectual Party offers you the chance to collaborate with other research students, to participate in practical workshops, and to have a lot of fun in the process! There will also be plenty of opportunity to meet and engage with some of the University’s well-known researchers.
This year we are inviting people to submit abstracts in relation to a series of themed Salons and more mysterious Secret Gardens. We are also planning a special gallery of ideas about crises. The Party will culminate in a spectacular finale but the action need not end there. If you wish to stay an extra day, you are welcome to join us on a sociological expedition to the world-famous Lake District.
Our Intellectual Party is more than just another conference - it combines academic challenge with plenty of fun!
If you are interested in joining us, and presenting a paper on your research, please visit
All subjects are welcome, so long as they can be linked to sociology. The deadline for submissions in 14th March. The registration fee for non-Lancaster students is £65. This includes refreshments, dinner and lunches during the two day conference. If you wish to attend the trip to the Lake District, a further cost will be incurred.
If you have any queries please contact Angela Loxham (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Looking forward to hearing from you,
The Summer Conference Committee
