Call for sessions

Call for sessions

The conference theme is “Myths and realities of the Nordic welfare state”.

We invite conference participants to engage in a conversation about the myths and realities of the Nordic welfare state, asking questions such as: Are the Nordic countries truly the feminist paradise they are often depicted as? Are health inequalities really the least pronounced in the Nordic countries? Are Nordic societies inclusive to all immigrants? This broad theme intersects all areas of sociological concern, including inequality, gender, migration, health, crime, the environment, education, religion, politics, culture, or the economy. Our goal is to host an inspiring conference where scholars can both describe Nordic realities but also critically examine myths of Nordic excellence.  


We are pleased to invite proposals for sessions within the theme of the conference or other themes of sociological interest.

Session proposals should include the following information:
