International Conference "Psychology and the Conduct of Everyday Life"

June 26-28, 2013, Department of Psychology and Educational Studies,
Roskilde University, Denmark


CALL FOR PAPERS

This conference explores the conduct of everyday life in contemporary
society. Although the study of everyday life has a long tradition within
the social and human sciences, the question of how human beings as active
sensuous subjects live their everyday life is rarely included in
theoretical and empirical research. The conference intends to explore the
conduct of everyday life as a basis for understanding the dilemmas and
contradictions of how to live one's life. How can we develop knowledge
about and research into the active efforts of subjects to engage in
everyday activities, tasks and participations across time and space? What
kind of new forms of doing and thinking everyday life are emerging and how
do they contribute to the remaking of the social world? How to
reconceptualize subjectivity, agency and the possibilities for social and
political change? The conference attempts to substantiate a critical
situated approach to the experiences and actions of practicing human life
in today's social and technological world, and to debate how the study of
subjects in the context of their conduct of everyday life can contribute
to the development of psychological theory, methodology, and practice.


The conference offers a platform for scholars from psychology and other
social and human sciences to engage in an interdisciplinary dialogue on
the conduct of everyday life. We are interested in proposals for papers
and symposia from diverse disciplines and traditions of thought
contributing with theoretical, methodological as well as empirical work to
the study of the conduct of life in and across the different arenas of
everyday life (e.g. family, education, work, gender, health, migration,
technology, environment, politics).


Keynote speakers include:

Ole Dreier, University of Copenhagen

Tim Ingold, University of Aberdeen

Silvia Federici, Hofstra University

Ute Osterkamp, Free University Berlin

G. Günter Voß, Chemnitz University of Technology


Abstracts should be no longer than 250 words and should include the full
name, institutional affiliation and email of each author. For symposia an
abstract of no more than 250 words is required, along with short (no more
than 150 words) summaries of each individual contribution.


Please submit paper and symposia proposals to celc[at]ruc.dk by January 15,
2013.

Charlotte Højholt, Kasper A. Kristensen, Ernst Schraube
