Call for Papers
The XVII ISA World Congress of Sociology
Gothenburg, Sweden, July 11-17, 2010
The International Sociological Association (ISA) will hold the XVII World Congress of Sociology in Sweden in July 2010, with the theme "Sociology on the Move." The Call for Papers is included in links to Research Committees (RC) and Working and Thematic Groups on the ISA website. Deadlines for proposals vary by RC, but all close during the fall of 2009. See www.isa-sociology.org/congress2010/rc/index.htm and connect to specific RCs to view information for submitting proposals.
ASA will provide travel support to the XVII World Congress with funds awarded by the National Science Foundation for this purpose. Information about travel support will be published in January 2010 in various ASA sources. The selection process will include a peer-reviewed assessment of applications, and will seek to ensure a presence at the World Congress of junior scholars and sociologists underrepresented in international scholarly meetings.
The ISA is the major international organization of sociologists, and the World Congress is therefore an important opportunity for U.S. sociologists to exchange ideas and scholarship and promote collaborations on an international scale.
