Symbolic Interaction Special Issue

Symbolic Interaction Special Issue, edited by Jacqueline Low and Gary Bowden, welcomes papers for a special issue on “Celebrating and Interrogating the Blumerian Legacy.” As we mark the 50th Anniversary of the publication of Blumer’s (1969) pivotal Symbolic Interactionism: Perspective and Method, it is timely to address debates and critical claims central to the status and future of Blumerian interactionism. We envision a mix of papers which both commemorate and critically assess Blumer himself, or Blumerian theory and methodology, as well as substantive papers that add to, or provide a corrective for, Blumerian interactionism. Deadline: September 30, 2019. Submit all papers through the journal’s online portal: mc.manuscriptcentral.com/si. Cover letters should mention that the submission is intended for the special issue commemorating the anniversary of Blumer’s (1969) book. For more information, contact the editors Jacqueline Low at jlow@unb.ca and Gary Bowden at glb@unb.ca, or the editor-in-chief at Scott.Harris@slu.edu.
