It’s that time of year again!
The editors of the Sociology of Development section’s newsletter, Sectors, invite section members to submit news, information, recent publications, calls for papers, and job market announcements for the Fall issue of Sectors.
In particular we welcome:
– photos taken at the Seattle meetings (of the section reception, business meeting, and/or sessions);
– new member book or journal publications, with citation and/or abstract (abstract is not required, but strongly encouraged). A cover image for new book announcements as well as a link to the publication is welcome;
– member announcements: news of completed dissertations, new positions and promotions, news of research grants and awards received by section members, obituaries;
– Job market candidates: Please submit (1) your name, (2) affiliation/school, (3) email and website (if applicable), (4) specializations, (5) Dissertation Title, and (6) a short dissertation abstract (150-200 words);
– news about opportunities: calls for proposals and papers, job and fellowship opportunities, grant opportunities, event announcements about upcoming conferences and workshops organized by section members;
– short descriptions of member research projects in process.
We also encourage doctoral candidates to submit short articles (500-600 words) for Field Notes, a new series that will feature graduate student fieldwork experiences. “Field Notes” articles may reflect upon the implications of recent research—methods and/or findings—for international development scholarship. Pieces also may address particular fieldwork experiences, such as the author’s positionality, the field site, methodological choices and challenges, etc. See attached for more information.
The submission deadline is October 31st, 2016.
Please send all material to Sectors’ co-editors, Svetla Dimitrova and Kelly Birch Maginot, at SOCDEVSectors@gmail.com <mailto:SOCDEVSectors@gmail.com> <mailto:SOCDEVSectors@gmail.com <mailto:SOCDEVSectors@gmail.com>> . The Fall 2016 edition of Sectors is scheduled for release in early December, so time-sensitive news items (such as calls for papers, job applications, etc.) should have mid-December or later deadlines.
