Learn More about the RC09 Members

As the Toronto 2018 ISA Congress is approaching, you may want to learn more about its participants. In our last Newsletter issue, we have added a new section – the information about the current research projects and grants of the RC09 members. You can also find references (and sometimes full texts) of the recently published and forthcoming RC09 member publications on this website or in our RC09 Newsletter issues. For the curious ones, we encourage you to see (or remind yourself) the results of a very interesting initiative – the RC09 members’ survey 2016 – prepared by Josh Dubrow. The main goal of this survey is to understand the research interests of RC09 members, their daily life of scholars and attitudes toward the role of ISA RC09 in their lives.

The call for content for the next issue of our Newsletter will be announced soon. Stay tuned!
