Two Significant Summer EventsThe Institute of Communication and Sociology wishes to call the readers’ attention to two significant events which took place in the summer months of 2021.
Professor Beáta Nagy’s semi-plenary lecture at the conference of the European Sociological Association
The 15th conference of the European Sociological Association, entitled „Sociological Knowledges for Alternative Futures”, took place between 31 August and 3 September 2021. The venue was Barcelona, but due to the pandemic, the event was finally held online. Professor Nagy’s presentation took place in the semi-plenary session “The Future of Gender Equality in Post-Pandemic Societies”. Her presentation was entitled “I am Lucky, Because my Husband Helps me a Lot: Gender (In)equality in Home Office”. The other speaker of the session was Anna Rosińska, researcher at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, whose presentation was on the risk situation of careworkers doing child and elderly care during the COVID-19: “Centered On Care. Dispatches From Domestic Workers During The Pandemic“. The presentations were well received, with almost 700 people attending the semi-plenary session.
