Dear Section Members,
The editors of the Sociology of Development section’s newsletter, Sectors, invite junior scholars (i.e. graduate students, recent grads, postdocs, and tenure-track faculty) to submit short descriptive articles (500-600 words) about their research for Notes from the Field. Notes from the Field is a feature that highlights ongoing and recent experience related to field work, and offers an opportunity for junior scholars to raise their profile by sharing their work with scholars interested in development sociology. Recent essays highlight archival research in Geneva, working with a translator in Bangladesh, and handling ethical dilemmas in India. You can find these and other essays in past issues on our section website: https://sociologyofdevelopment.com/sectorsnewsletters/.
Please send all essays to Sectors co-editors Kelly Birch Maginot and Victoria Reyes at SOCDEVSectors@gmail.com by Monday, April 2nd, at 11:59 p.m. EST. Essays will undergo a review by the Sectors editorial team, and accepted essays may be published in either the Spring 2018 or Fall 2019 issue.
Please consider submitting a piece and/or encouraging your students and colleagues to submit. We would like to read more about your research!
Kelly Birch Maginot and Victoria Reyes,
2017-2018 Sectors Co-editors
