We would like to thank all the participants and attendees in our successful launching conference “Reappropriating Durkheim? Cultural Sociology Here and Now,” held on January 1-2, 2019 at Bar Ilan University.
The conference centered on questions of solidarity, classifications and cultural-moral codes. Eva Illouz made the key note address.  There was special session honoring the retirement of Ilana Silber and a book launch celebration Danny Kaplan’s new book "The Nation and the Promise of Friendship: Building Solidarity through Sociability".
