Our conference themes are Austerity, Justice and Well-being, and Gender, Objectification and Coercion.
The conference boasts an impressive lineup of keynotes, award addresses, and invited symposia including (to name a few), Kate Pickett (co-author of the Spirit Level), Aisha Gill, winner of a major British award for her work on gender violence, 'honor' killings and FGM, Faye Crosby, Tom Tyler, Allan Lind, Janet Swim, Susan Clayton, Alex Haslam, and Mark Alicke. There is also an exclusive director’s Q & A screening of a Cannes-award winning film The Selfish Giant which explores themes of poverty, aspiration and morality in contemporary society.
As well as being high quality, the conference is particularly friendly, collegial, and welcoming to graduate students.
There is an all-day PhD workshop on the first day, 20 July, in which students have an opportunity to present and discuss their research, as well as receive training and mentorship from early-career and established researchers.
Your registration fee includes a welcome drinks reception in the beautiful grounds of historic Canterbury Cathedral on 20 July. There is a great social program including visits to castles, an ancient brewery, and a walking tour of the beautiful medieval city of Canterbury.
Early bird registration discounts are available until Friday, 18 March. For student members of ISJR, the registration fee is £93 (approx US$132); for full members, it's £196 (approx US$278). Non-members pay c. $40 more (students) or $75 more (faculty). This is equivalent to the cost of joining ISJR (including subscription to Social Justice Research).
Please submit your papers, posters, and symposia by Wednesday, 10 February. We encourage you to assemble friends and colleagues together for symposia on any theme connected to justice, fairness, legitimacy, and morality.
