Atmospheres (July 2015, Manchester UK)

1-2 July 2015
Location: University of Manchester, UK
Deadline for submissions: 12 January 2015

Atmospheres play a significant role in, and add an important quality to, our intimate, domestic and public lives, yet are often overlooked in social research, not least because of the methodological challenges involved in capturing them.

In this major conference celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Morgan Centre, we will be using the theme of atmospheres as our starting point for interdisciplinary dialogue.

Abstracts will be invited in the following kinds of areas. These are intended to stimulate ideas and are not prescriptive.

– Atmospheres in intimate, domestic and emotional life
– Belonging, place and atmosphere
– Smell, sight, sound, touch and taste
– Political and socio-cultural atmospheres
– Atmosphere, public events and crowds
– Online/virtual atmospheres
– How atmospheres can be captured methodologically
– What makes an atmosphere
