Conferința internațională: "Social sciences and the contemporary challenges. 20 years of teaching sociology at the University of Oradea" 9-10 Iunie 2016.
20 years have passed since we started the adventure of teaching and research in Sociology at the University of Oradea, one of the ambitious newcomers in the post-1990 Romanian higher education area. They have been years of intense and thought provoking social transformations, from the macro-societal level to the micro, individual scale, in areas like politics, policies, family, religion, demographics, values a.s.o. Despite the prophecies, the end of history could never have been more distant while numerous and quickly changing challenges come in the way. Partly mirroring its development, partly due to its internal logic, it has been an interval of equally puzzling changes in the status and paradigms of social sciences.
Celebrating the two decades since inception of Sociology teaching at the University of Oradea we invite colleagues from Romania and abroad to congregate with us in sharing the results of their current reflections and research on the contemporary challenges facing societies and social sciences.
