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.
