Conference Theme 2022:
Positioning Theory Explorations to a Deeper Understanding

In 2022, we are delighted to welcome scholars and researchers at all career stages to a full three-day conference, focused on the contributions of positioning theory to research, as developed by Rom Harré and others. The conference will take place at the University at Buffalo (UB), State University of New York (SUNY), in Buffalo, New York from July 24 to July 27, 2022.

The conference, internationally recognized for its encouragement of in-depth research and discussions on using positioning theory in all social science disciplines, provides a space for early-career to senior academics, graduate and higher degree students, community researchers and practitioners in a range of disciplines from across the world to share and learn from each other together.
