Here we will be presenting films and videos on the everyday lives of sociologists from different parts of the world – teaching, doing research, engaging publics, attending conferences, and so forth.
Challenges for a Global Sociology
In March 2009, the ISA Council of National Assocations held a conference in Taipei, under the theme Facing an Unequal World. "Challenges for a Global Sociology" is a short documentary filmed at the conference (and later edited) by Annie Lin and Ana Villarreal, capturing major challenges faced by sociologists from different parts of the world.
