IACR Conference 2024

The University of Warwick in the UK will host the 26th IACR Conference.

Conference: 31 July - 2 August 2024.

There will be a pre-conference workshop on 29 - 30 July 2024 for students and others who are new to critical realism.

The theme for this conference is to 'look back in order to look forward'. Next year (2024) marks the first anniversary of the death of Maggie Archer, former Professor of Sociology and Head of Department at the University of Warwick. Her work on social morphogenesis and social ontology is well-established in the social sciences. It also marks the tenth anniversary of Roy Bhaskar’s death, a philosopher who was instrumental in establishing IACR and developing the original philosophy of critical realism and making it relevant to amongst other things environmental issues and interdisciplinarity. We would like to honour both Roy Bhaskar and Maggie Archer as they would have wished, by taking seriously their thought and where it sits in Critical Realism going forward. In considering intellectual challenges in a range of disciplines, we will reflect on their distinct contributions to critical realist thought.
