[COES CONFERENCE] Call for proposals for individual speakers, panels and academic posters

This 2018, the COES Conference will be focus on CONCENTRATIONS. Alfredo Joignant, political scientist, head researcher of COES and Associate Professor in the Universidad Diego Portales, is the Director of this event.

 

The Centre for Social Conflict and Cohesion Studies (COES) extends an invitation to participate in an interdisciplinary reflection on the concentration of power, wealth, status and information, among other sources of domination present in society. We are interested in understanding the temporal, political, social and spatial effects on the development of social conflict and cohesion. On this occasion, the concentration of power will be analyzed from different perspectives, according to the following thematic lines:
THEMATIC LINES
  1. Concentration of wealth and income: evolution, causes and consequences
  2. Concentration of ownership of media outlets: Why does it matter?
  3. The Chilean elite: Circulation, ruptures, discontinuities or reproduction?
  4. Concentrations of political voice
  5. Urban concentration and segregation
  6. Domination and hegemony of the masculine models on social bonds
  7. The domination of diplomas: Concentration of cultural capital
  8. Psychosocial factors that explain the concentration and motivation to maintain power

The 2018 COES Conference will accept three types of proposals: individual oral presentations, panels and posters. All work should be unpublished and will only be admitted through the application forms available on the official conference website. Once selected, you must submit the final publication by October 15, in order to validate your presentation.
