Call for submissions
Published three times a year in January, April and September
Article submissions to the eSymposium must
have sociological value and interest for an international
community of social scientists, both from the point of pure,
scholarly research as well as from applied dimensions. We
welcome submissions from teaching faculty, postdoctoral
fellows and graduate students in the social sciences. We
welcome all submissions in the following categories:
1) Essays (up
to 4000 words)
We invite contributions in the form of
feature articles from sociologists working in all fields
- substantive, methodological and theoretical. The article
can be both empirical and theoretical and deal with issues
that will be of interest to sociologists practising in a
variety of locales- universities, research institutes and
NGOS- for example.
2) In conversation
Here our intention is to showcase the sociological
work and life experiences of a prominent sociologist (including
'retired') from any part of the world, in the form of a
dialogue, conversation, interview with another sociologist.
All suggestions and proposals are welcome.
3) Reflections (up
to 3000 words)
We are seeking the more personal, biographical
accounts from practising sociologists about their experiences
of teaching, researching or leading administratively in
a particular setting. The topic and theme is open-ended
and we welcome all proposals.
4) Photo essays
We welcome photo essays from practitioners
in the field of visual sociology on any substantive topic.
The available technology facilitates inclusion of visual
material, with text-based substance.
5) Video clips
Given this new medium of publication, we
will be able to upload and make available video clips to
ISA members. We thus invite submissions of videos, short
feature films and recordings - as sociological 'products'
in addition to a written text.
6) Forum (200-400 words)
We invite brief comments, notes, communications
and letters from sociologists on any topic of relevance
to an international community of sociologists. We intend
for the 'Forum" section to be a regular feature in
the e-Bulletin. This will need the support of the members
to be successful.
All communications should include a contact
name and address, including an e-mail address. The deadline
for submissions is the first of the month before each of
the three issues (eg. 1 December for the January issue).
Please direct all communications,
submissions and enquires to:
