Emergent Culture

6th midterm Conference of the ESA Research Network "Sociology of Culture"

The theme of the 6th midterm conference, ‘Emergent Culture’, focuses on the diverse pathways of how emergence, as a theoretical framework and empirical phenomenon, enters into the sociological study of culture. Emergence is a key lens that captures core cultural sociological processes of action, meaning and transformation. As such, emergence is understood in relation to events and materiality; access, skills and technology; clusters and bundles; history, memories and associated social practices. It is in this sense that the Conference casts a wide intellectual net to catch the numerous ways emergence enters and shapes social relations between people, spaces, symbols and objects.
