Today’s social fabric is a realm of important changes and movements. Work loses its salience, transnationalism shapes everyday life, people live more and spend more time in education than ever, they marry later (the second demographic transition is practically generalized), societal organization is under siege, both from populism and main stream ideologies, religion is turning into a diversity of positioning, family becomes more diverse than ever, organizations operate with new structures and patterns, social ties are redefined by social media and digitization. Such changes were anticipated since the early 1970s, when a tide of post- concepts was shaping social sciences, including, but not being limited to postindustrial society, postmodern, poststructuralism, etc. The conference acknowledges the current trends and asks how the nowadays processes are reflected in our research. What we are looking from participants is to present their own research also referring, at least in the discussion part, to these “post-“ trends that are in place. Therefore, we invite for proposing conference panels that include your current research, seen through the post-lenses of our current societies, as given by the above-underlined transformations.
