Knowledge is both a collective and an individual resource. Societal dynamics are driven by the accessibility and composition of knowledge at a macro level. As claimed by the prophets of the knowledge society, the way knowledge production takes place must therefore be of key interest to all societies.
Scholars who address our key topic from an analytical-empirical perspective in sociology, in particular, or from perspectives of other social sciences such as political science, demographic research, communication and data science, or the economics of education are invited to present and discuss their research in a stimulating format. In addition, we also very welcome talks on other topics (open sessions). The conference language is English.
The 4th AS Conference will be held in August, 28-30, 2023 at the University of Bern (Switzerland). See the call for papers at our conference website.
