    1 roundtable session organized by the ISA Early Career Sociologists Task Force, Thursday, July 16. Coordinators: Filomin Gutierrez, Jay Chen, Eloisa Martin, and Elina Oinas

    This session with simultaneously run round tables will provide opportunities for early career sociologists and graduate students to engage with established sociologists in an informal setting. Starting with some introductory remarks from the featured sociologist at each roundtable, the session will address questions from junior sociologists about matters that concern practitioners of the discipline - teaching, doing research, publishing and performing service tasks - and the challenges entailed in negotiating academic terrains. The ISA is committed to supporting emerging sociologists and this session is one small but important initiative at the Forum to foster and enhance dialogue and debates among a global community of junior and senior sociologists. The remit of the session is to contribute to the professional development of early career sociologists – including graduate students – and to share experiences of academia as practitioners. The session organizers will select up to 100 early career and graduate students who will attend the IV ISA Forum of Sociology.
