It is our great pleasure to announce the new RC09 Newsletter – the first issue with the new editor Zophia Edwards, Assistant Professor of Sociology, Providence College. Here are couple words about the new issue from the editor:
[Our 2017 Newsletter] contains a special opening by RC 09 Co-President Ulrike Schuerkens, a provocative piece by co-President Habibul H. Khondker, information about the RC 09 sessions in the upcoming ISA World Congress in Toronto, and recent publications by RC 09 members. Special thanks to all who sent submissions.
The list of RC09 sessions at the ISA World Congress in Toronto 2018 is already available online. Current and diverse – the issues covered by seventeen (!) RC09 sessions open possibilities for many interesting individual presentations in the field of social transformations and development. The call for paper abstracts just opened, so there is still plenty of time to carefully read RC09 session abstracts, select the session most suitable for your research interests and think about individual presentations (see guidelines for presenters). The deadline for selecting a session and submitting paper abstracts is September 30, 2017.
The procedure is simple and the prize very appealing. Why not try?
We encourage you to send your original and not-yet-published academic paper (up to 6,000 words) on social transformations and sociology of development to the Competition Committee. For more details press here. We will just add that the deadline is March 31, 2017.
Deadline for submitting session proposals is March 15, 2017.
The main Congress theme is Power, Violence and Justice: Reflections, Responses and Responsibilities
RC 09 invites to propose sessions on globalization, inequality, labor markets, civil society organizations, and development, and other topics breaking new grounds in social transformations and sociology of development and in line with the main Congress theme.
Guidelines and specifics can be found on the ISA website for the World Congress.
