Call for papers
13th International Conference on Interdisciplinary Social Sciences will be held at the University of Grenada. The conference examines the nature of disciplinary practices in the study of society and the interdisciplinary practices that arise in the context of ‘real world’ applications of social research and theory. The conference also investigates what constitutes ‘science’ in a social context and the connections between the social and other sciences. The focus of papers ranges from the finely grained and empirical (research practices and results exemplifying one or more disciplines) to wide-ranging multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary perspectives on knowledge and method.
