Conference Call for Papers
In Honour of Dr. Michalis Attalides
Deadline: April 30, 2006

Organized by Cyprus Sociological Association

This is a call for conference papers intending to reassess, 
expand or critically transcend the pioneering contribution to
Cypriot sociology made by Michael Attalides.

Attalides' work recomposes dialectical moments of space, time 
and social being, namely geography, history and society thus
periodizing dramatic changes in the experience of Cypriot 
modernity. Expected conference contributions may specialize 
or historicize accordingly, elaborate conceptually or empirically 
on uncharted areas submerged in his work, add comparative to 
local perspectives, or rethink and reevaluate an already existing 
legacy upon which a new generation of sociologists found solid 
and reliable premises to punctuate from different angles the
contradictory processes and meanings of modernization.

Conference themes might include:

- Social change/social institutions
- Urban sociology/anthropology
- Nationalism/irredentism
- Geopolitics/state-building (or state-destroying) 
- Identity politics/postcolonial theory 
- Social theory/psychoanalysis 
- Political parties

Conference Details:
- Dates: November (10-12), 2006
- Venue: Intercollege, Nicosia
