KISMIF CONFERENCE 2024 ’DIY CULTURES, DEMOCRACY AND CREATIVE PARTICIPATION’
KISMIF SUMMER SCHOOL 2024 ‘LIVING ON THE EDGE’
CALL FOR PROPOSALS
From 20 August 2023 to 15 March 2024
KISMIF Summer School 2022: 09 July 2024
KISMIF Conference 2022: 10-13 July 2024
Under the motto ‘DIY CULTURES, DEMOCRACY AND CREATIVE PARTICIPATION’ (KISMIF 2024), we invite you to submit proposals for this special edition of the KISMIF Conference and Summer School, certain that this discussion is URGENT AND ESSENTIAL. And we urge you to submit proposals inspired by the legacy of Howard S. Becker – who died last August – who always defended the advantages of ‘doing things together’ – incessantly recalling the example of a film in which you see the credits. That is, ALL THE ACTORS are needed to make that final product and taking anyone out will result in something different. Becker has always believed that everyone is creative and deconstructing how these processes work brings to light the function of theories and works created in sociology and the social sciences.
Thus, the submission of abstracts for this Conference is open to RESEARCHERS, ACADEMICS, ACTIVISTS, AND ARTISTS working in all areas of sociology, anthropology, history, cultural economics, cultural studies, geography, philosophy, urban planning, media, and cognate disciplines such as design, illustration, popular music, film, visual and performing arts. This initiative follows the great success of the past SIX KISMIF CONFERENCES (held in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2018, 2021, and 2022) and brings together an international community of researchers, artists, and activists focusing on ALTERNATIVE MUSIC-ART SCENES and DO-IT-YOURSELF CULTURES.
