|Description||The main theme for this year’s conference was the various forms of reflexivity. Reflexivity represents a classic tool of sociological thinking about the nature of the social and of its own scientific practice. We created a space for inner reflexivity – for the relation of sociology to itself. The conference allowed for discussion of the state of sociological thinking and research, the presentation of the latest findings, progressive innovations as well as dead ends. We considered it equally important to explore our own sociological position in networks of relationships and the position of sociological knowledge in public culture – outer reflexivity. We looked at how sociology enters the processes of construction of societal problems, and how the relationship of the academic sociological field to other scientific disciplines and other fields (economic, political, educational, etc.) is currently formed. Last, but not least, we focused on the role of reflexivity as a theoretical concept that allows us to grasp the character of modern subjectivity in the context of transforming social structures. The online conference was attended actively by about 150 academics; the conference programme dedicated to the general public within the Week of Sociology reached almost 2000 views. The conference language was Czech and English.|
