BSA Annual Conference 2019 Call for Papers, Glasgow 24–26 April 2019

Dear Colleague,

We cordially invite you to contribute a paper to the Sociology, Psychoanalysis and the Psychosocial Study Group’s ‘grouping’ or  ’sub-stream’  at the 2019 BSA conference to be held at Glasgow Caledonian University 24–26 April 2019.  The submission deadline for conventional 20 minute papers is 12th October 2018 and the deadline for panel submissions is 5th October 2018 (for panels, see the ’special event submission pack’ on the submissions page of the conference site). Note you do NOT have to be a member of the BSA or the Study Group to submit a paper.

Submission guidelines are available on the BSA conference website. To be included in the Study Group’s ‘grouping’ papers and panel proposals should be submitted to the FRONTIERS stream (identified in a drop down menu in the submission form) and should include the words ‘psychosocial’ or ‘psychoanalysis, ideally in the title but at least in the abstract.  This will ensure your paper is reviewed by a specialist in the field.

If you have problems with the submission process, contact the BSA office. Tel: 0191 383 0839 or alternatively email at

With our very best regards, as ever,

Peter and Julie
