This is an open call for papers for the “Sociology of Development” panel(s) of the Canadian Sociological Association (CSA) annual conference (cross-listed with the Canadian Association for the Study of International Development). The 49th Annual Conference of the CSA will be held from Monday, May 26 through to Friday, May 30, 2014 as part of the Canadian Federation of Humanities and Social Sciences Congress, this year taking place at Brock University in St. Catharines (Niagara Falls), Ontario.
This session invites papers on the sociology of development. Social forces often play a significant role in shaping not only economic development, but also human, social and political development. Works are invited that examine the social causes and/or consequences of development, broadly defined. Papers may explore any unit of analysis (local, regional, national or international) – case studies and comparative analyses are particularly welcome. For information on the panel(s), visit:http://www.csa-scs.ca/files/webapps/csapress/annual-conferences/2013/11/11/sociology-of-development/ .
For those unfamiliar with the Canadian Federation of Humanities and Social Sciences Congress, it is now in its 83rd year, attracting on average around 6,000 attendees. It brings together about 70 scholarly association annual meetings, including meeting of the Canadian Sociological Association, the Canadian Association for the Study of International Development, the Canadian Political Science Association, the Society for Socialist Studies and many more that may be of interest to sociologists.
We are hoping to build on the momentum of last year’s Development Sociology panels at the CSA. Please distribute among your networks.
