DSA2017: Sustainability interrogated: societies, growth, and social justice
University of Bradford, 6-8th September
The DSA's annual conference in 2017 will take place at the University of Bradford, from 6-8th September. While encompassing the broad range of development studies interests, the suggested focus is Sustainability Interrogated: Societies, Growth, and Social Justice. This theme is elaborated here.
Building on DSA2016, we hope to attract 400 participants from the Development Studies community for three days of panels, keynotes, study group business meetings and social events. In addition to the discussions and networking, conference participants will be able to enjoy multi-cultural Bradford’s world leading South Asian cuisine, explore the Victorian model village of nearby Saltaire and see David Hockney’s paintings at the gallery in Saltaire. Note there's a new Hockney Gallery just opened in Bradford.
The daily timetable and the panel timetable are posted, and registration remains open. After registering for the conference (and perhaps the dinner), return to the lower part of the registration page to book University accommodation.
Please note that to reduce plastic waste and consequent environmental damage, we ask delegates to please bring their own water bottles to the conference, and (re)fill them from the water fountains provided. We will not provide water for presenters.
The call for funding is now CLOSED, and decisions have been communicated to all applicants (successful or not).
As with last year, the conference hopes to attract both academics and the wider community of colleagues working in the realm of policy and practice. Consequently we welcome panel sessions being organised in other formats that generate exciting discussion and exchange of ideas.
