ISA World Congress 2014

We have had two abstracts accepted for the International Sociological Association’s World Congress in Yokohama, Japan. The conference takes place in July 2014 and will bring together sociologists from all over the world. The Representing Communities team will give a paper in the session

– What is the Worth of Art?: Approaches to the Sociology of Art Valuations and Evaluations.

Project team members Eva Elliott and Ellie Byrne will explore the contribution of the arts and humanities to generate representations of resistance to hegemonic understandings of ‘deprived communities’. This will draw on the work we have done to date across the UK but particularly in Wales, using examples of how the arts have been used with communities to challenge stigmatised perceptions of their communities. Ellie Byrne will also give a paper based on her PhD, looking at the analysis and interpretation of visual data.
