V International Conference of the Madrid Sociology Association

VIII International Conference on Teaching in the Social Sciences

Social challenges of emerging technologies.

Vulnerabilities, proposals and experiences.

 January 11-12 2024


Facultad CC Información. Universidad Complutense de Madrid

Organizers: Asociación Madrileña de Sociología / CI 15 Sociología de las Organizaciones (FES) / CI 24 Sociología de la Comunicación y del Lenguaje (FES)

Collaborators: Asociación Iberoamericana de Sociología de las Organizaciones y Comunicación (AISOC) / Facultad de CC Información de la Universidad Complutense / Grupo Complutense 931571 Comunicación Responsable y Públicos Vulnerables / RC 14 de ISA.

Presidency: María Dolores Cáceres (AMS), María Victoria Sangustín (CI15), Giuliano Tardivo (CI24), José A. Ruiz San Román (RC 14 ISA).

The convening organisations periodically bring together teachers and researchers with the commitment to contribute reflections, exchange points of view and debate on diverse perspectives that facilitate enrichment and help to improve the teaching work at the university.

The irruption of technologies that use Artificial Intelligence (AI) appears as a challenge never known before in teaching. On the one hand, some of the century-old teaching procedures and research methodology must be rethought and, at the same time, as has so often happened with the appearance of emerging technologies, fears, ethical challenges, reticence, and questions arise.

We face the academic year 2023-24 with the conviction that, from now on, nothing will ever be the same again. The extension and potential of ICTs and, in particular, the potential of AI, are transforming the social sciences.


We invite you to send theoretical reflections and empirical research on the challenges that teaching and research in relation to emerging technologies will have to face or are already facing.

Call for contributions for the thematic issue on: Media Narratives on National Identities

(SCAD Volume dedicated to the celebration of 200 years of the Greek War of Independence)

Collective identities (such as national identities) are an object of continuous process, negotiation and redefinition (in the field of private as well as in the field of public discourses – like media narratives).

Nowadays, Media play a crucial role giving meaning to current ideas and diffusing perceptive images of the ongoing social reality (through concrete symbolical forms). Thus, the sociological study of identities needs to observe the (mass and social) media narratives and the social representations (images and arguments) which are reproduced by them creating a “feeling of community”. This “feeling of community” is important because it determines the constitution and the symbolization of significant social links (the foundation of “being together” in any society). Common symbols (such as the national ones) are converted to a part of everyday life for the audiences, bridging distances in time and space and reporting “reality” in the sphere of everyday perception. 

In times of globalization and of social and economic uncertainty (due to the economic crisis, the refugee and migration problems, the construction of supranational entities or the deconstruction of the existing socialist systems etc.), the contemporary societies redefine world borders and identities. Two centuries after the creation of the so called “romantic nations” (among which modern Greece), how the contemporary media reflect nations and the world? Are “national” identities still important or solidarities among people follow different (such as religious, technological or simply “monetary”) inspirations of “being together” (of “belonging” to a specific community)? How the contemporary “identities” are shaped and how are they “reported” by the contemporary media?

This volume intends to investigate ongoing media (either electronic or digital) narratives describing the contemporary meaning of “significant” identities (such as national identities for instance); references can be made to any shaping of identity given as considerable by current “news” and “narrations” (concerning either modern Greece or Europe and the World). It invites research approaches on definitions of identities in the postmodern society, especially in the media discourse. How national (but also religious and other) proclamations of “being together” are disseminated by different media and which are the main criteria used by the contemporary societies in order to justify present separations due to different identities?

Proposals should be made in English according to the SOCIAL COHESION AND DEVELOPMENT JOURNAL instructions (; research works on Contemporary Identities in the Media Narratives should be original and not exceed 6,000 words including endnotes and references along with a short CV including affiliation, recent publications and current mailing address. Notes must figure at the end of the text together with the Bibliographical References (not a Bibliography in general) in Harvard System.

Interested parties should send their papers not later than June 30th 2021 to the Special Issue Editor, Prof. Christiana Constantopoulou,

Journée d'études Identités contemporaines et narrations médiatiques : qu’est-ce que l’identité nationale aujourd’hui ? 

(à l’occasion des 200 ans d’existence de la Grèce moderne)

Les Universités Panteion d’Athènes (EURCECOM), Paris Descartes (Philépol), Haute-Alsace, Sorbonne Nouvelle - Paris III, les Comités de Recherche Sociologie de la Communication, de la Culture et de la Connaissance de l’AIS et Socio-anthropologie Politique de l’AISLF et l’AMOPA-Grèce, organisent une Journée d’Études sur le thème Identités contemporaines et narrations médiatiques : qu’est-ce que l’identité nationale aujourd’hui ? le 10 décembre 2021 à la Maison de la Grèce (9, rue Mesnil 75116 Paris).

Les identités collectives (comme le sont les identités nationales) sont objet de négociations et redéfinitions, en mouvement continu (aussi bien pour ce qui concerne les discours « privés » que les discours publics – politiques ou médiatiques). L’identité grecque moderne est issue (comme d’autres identités nationales) des théories romantiques du 19e siècle qui ont abouti à la création d’états nationaux ; on constate le règne d’identités nationales pendant les deux derniers siècles dans le monde entier ainsi que leur importance dans la mise en place des « frontières » dans les sociétés actuelles. 

 Étant donné que les médias jouent un rôle élémentaire dans l’enjeu des représentations sociales dans le monde (donnant sens à la “réalité sociale” -entre autres par la diffusion sélective de symboles consommés dans la vie quotidienne), l’image des identités nationales dans les narrations médiatiques s’avère être d’un grand intérêt pour l’approche des identités – tout spécialement des identités nationales - dans notre monde : comment les individus et les peuples se définissent ? Quels thèmes sont considérés « importants » pour la définition et la présentation du soi dans les sociétés dites « postmodernes » ? Dans quelle mesure les « autres » sont considérés importants et qui sont-ils (dans le cadre des discours « hégémoniques »)?

La recherche sur les identités nationales est liée aux récits médiatiques et aux représentations (images et arguments) qui en sont reproduites (créant – avec d’autres institutions comme par ex. les institutions éducatives ou religieuses - le sentiment d’appartenance à une communauté) puisqu’ils offrent symboles et modèles communs aux populations, rendant l’identification nationale en une « partie déterminante » de la vie quotidienne, rapprochant les distances dues au temps ou à l’espace et indiquant l’événement considéré « remarquable » dans la sphère de la perception commune de tous les jours.

La journée d’études invite des recherches relatives à la formation des identités dans la société actuelle, tout spécialement dans le cadre des discours médiatiques. Comment les consciences (nationale, religieuse - ou autres qui peuvent paraître d’importance) sont-elles définies et par quels critères on se différencie des « autres » dans le cadre culturel mondial contemporain ?

La langue officielle de la journée d’études est le français et les résumés des propositions doivent parvenir jusqu’au 31 mars 2021 à l’adresse :

Media Narratives of the Crisis: Contemporary Representations,
