The 31st Nordic Sociological Association Conference

Campus Norrköping and Motala river.

Welcome to the 31st Nordic Sociological Association Conference that will be held at Linköping university (campus Norrköping), 14-16 August, 2024. Join us and take part in this long-standing tradition and preeminent platform for Nordic sociology, covering the whole spectrum of topics, methods and aspects of sociological research. This year’s theme is “Sociology in a Digital world”.

Theme: Sociology in a Digital World

Society and the digital world have become profoundly intertwined. The digital revolution has reshaped how we perceive, connect, communicate, and construct our social realities and has provided researchers with new questions, data and methods. Sociology plays a pivotal role in understanding this new social landscape as new technologies inspire researchers with new questions, data, and methods.

As reflected in the keynotes and panel discussions, the theme of this year’s NSA conference delves into this web of human behavior, technology, and society. Together, we will explore topics such as the emergence of new forms of inequality in the digital age, the impact of online communities on social cohesion, the implications of artificial intelligence on labor markets, the effect from social media on identity formation and social movements, the ethics of data collection and privacy, and other core sociological questions of today. Within this theme, we hope for a vibrant and transformative discourse at the intersection of sociology and the digital world.
