European Sociological Association Conference

Event Details

The ISOTIS team will participate in the European Sociological Association RN03 midterm conference. The theme of the conference is "Theoretical and empirical reflections on social disorganisation and “otherness” in modern European societies: Following the biographical and discursive approach of Thomas and Znaniecki’s legacy of “Polish Peasant in Europe and America". The conference will address developments on cultural and social diversity, cultural “mélange” and cultural nationalisms in modern European societies.

"ISOTIS: the mothers’ story of inequality and otherness in contemporary Europe: bringing up children in low income, immigrant and ethnic minority families” is the theme of the panel discussion that will be presented by ISOTIS researcher Lyudmila Nurse (University of Oxford) and other colleagues of the project. We will be presenting findings from the interviews aimed at parents with a Turkish, North African, Romani or lower-SES native background, and a 3-6 or 9-12-year-old child, focusing on their biographies. We have asked parents about issues related to bringing up their children – their experiences with educational systems and support services, their hopes and wishes for their children, their resources and support needs.
