Manchester will host the 14th European Sociological Association (ESA) conference, from 20 to 23 August 2019.

The bi-annual conference will bring together more than 3,000 national and international sociologists, and others from related disciplines, to exchange research findings and ideas on the theme of ‘Europe and Beyond: Boundaries, Barriers and Belonging’. 

The ESA conference was secured following a collaborative ‘Team Manchester’ approach between Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU), the University of Manchester (UoM), Visit Manchester and conference venue Manchester Central.

ESA president, professor Sue Scott, said: "We’re absolutely delighted to be bringing our conference to Manchester in 2019 – a vibrant city with so much to offer that is of both historic and contemporary interest to our delegates.

"We’re extremely pleased to be working with both of the city’s universities as well as Manchester Central. The venue team has already been extremely helpful and welcoming and with a building steeped in so much history, it promises to be our most interesting venue yet!"

Sheona Southern, managing director of Marketing Manchester, said: "Manchester has always been a city of radical thinking, and with the strength of our universities and research facilities the city continues to attract esteemed conferences who are drawn in by our excellent venues and inspiring history."
