Sociology Special issue 2014

Call for Tenders

Sociological perspectives on major global events

The Editorial Board of Sociology invites proposals for a special issue on one or more of the following themes:

(1) Austerity and protest;

(2) The global economic crisis;

(3) The resurgence of rightwing populism and the reconfiguration of conservative movements. 

Sociology is acknowledged as one of the leading journals in its field.  For more than three decades it has made a major contribution to the debates that have shaped the discipline and it has an undisputed international reputation for quality and originality. The journal now seeks a special issue that will examine the social in context of recent events. 

The successful proposal will have broad, mainstream appeal.  It will engage conceptually and explicitly with sociology and present a strong rationale for exploring the theme(s), drawing on key areas of sociological work (the social imaginary, generation, youth, emotions, gender, work, etc.). The special issue of Sociology (vol. 48) will be published in October 2014.

The team should consist of two or more editors. Applicants should have a clear vision of the purpose and content of their special issue. Issue content may be recruited by inviting submissions and open call.  Applicants are encouraged to include details/abstracts of any invited contributions at the time of application.  All submissions will be peer reviewed.

Deadline for tenders: Monday 8 October 2012
