RC19 Session “Social Exclusion in Comparative Perspective: Migration, Policy, and Power”

Issues of social exclusion are intimately related to concepts of justice and power. In an era of ascendant neoliberalism some countries are making efforts to promote universalism. However, this universalism is often extended to nationals and only sometimes to residents and other migrants. This session welcomes contributions that examine how social exclusion is manifested and received: both at the policy and the group and individual levels, across methodological approaches. In doing so, this session seeks to draw attention to the possibly contradictory forces of neoliberalism and universalism and how they are related, conceptually and substantively, to questions of justice and power in an increasingly globalizing world.

Questions can be directed to the session organizers: Shiri Noy, snoy@uwyo.edu and Koen Voorend,koenvoorend@gmail.com

Abstracts should be submitted via the online system at:

RC03 Session on “Detachment or Deepening? Nationalism, Resistance, and Rebellion in an Era of Globalization.”  Organized by Matthew Sanderson and Rachel Harvey

July 15-21, 2018 in Toronto, Canada

Abstract submission deadline: September 30, 2017  

From the UK Brexit to the election of U.S. President Donald J. Trump, the force of rural voters caught policy makers and the media off guard.  Peoples residing in areas characterized as “rural” are suddenly at the forefront of public discourse around the world.  Thought leaders are trying to understand the ‘sudden rise’ of rural citizenries, raising such questions as, “Who are these voters?  What do they want?  What are their grievances?  What motivates them?” Sociologists are uniquely positioned to address such pressing questions.  This session will highlight sociological research on the dynamics shaping development in rural areas, focusing especially on the role of globalization.  All methodologies, theoretical orientations, and areas of attention (in the Global North and/or Global South) are welcome.  Papers that employ comparative theoretical frameworks and/or methodologies are especially encouraged.

Questions can be directed to the session organizers: Matthew Sanderson, mattrs@ksu.edu and Rachel Harvey, rmh2148@columbia.edu
