European Sociological Association conference 2019 / by Katy Barbier-Greenland

I presented my talk today at the European Sociological Association’s 14th conference (known as ESA 2019) today at the University of Manchester, UK. All went well, and I was the only one who presented on the secrecy work of Simmel, with the three other presenters in the ‘Simmel and Beyond’ session sharing their work on conflict, mass movements and publics. Full conference wrap up to come!

In the meantime, check out all the highlights on Twitter with the hashtag #ESA2019 - pretty sure we were trending at one point, with 3,024 sociologists taking over the city!

Well, on a more personal note, I’ve been working towards this presentation for months, and now that it’s done, it’s time to celebrate! And organise a mini summer getaway while the weather is still (sort of) nice here in Europe.
