Comparative-historical sociologists approach even the most contemporary topics taking into account their longer-term geneses, and have the theoretical and methodological tools to approach even the oldest and most remote of matters with an eye to present-day concerns.
We are living in an era of crises in political economy, state-society relationships, geopolitics, and academia. This conference beckons sociologists and fellow travellers at all career stages to submit papers dealing with crises of capitalism, empires, the state and other social institutions, authoritarianism, social unrest, and knowledge production from historical, comparative, and critical-theoretical perspectives broadly understood.
Please submit abstracts of no more than 500 words through the electronic abstract submission form here. The deadline for paper submission is EXTENDED DEADLINE: March 15, 2018
Open sessions will be organized around the papers accepted through this call. Conference participants and attendees will be asked to contribute a participation fee of $25 for faculty and $15 for students to defray conference-organizing costs.
