Abe Fellowship (SSRC, CGP)
The Social Science Research Council (SSRC) and the Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership (CGP) announce the annual Abe Fellowship competition. The Abe Fellowship is designed to encourage international multidisciplinary research on topics of pressing global concern. The Abe Fellowship Program seeks to foster the development of a new generation of researchers who are interested in policy-relevant topics of long-range importance and who are willing to become key members of a bilateral and global research network built around such topics.
For more information on fellowship research themes, eligibility, and the application process, visit http://www.ssrc.org/fellowships/abe-fellowship or contact SSRC staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Comparative and Historical Sociology and Political Sociology sections of the ASA announce a special mini-conference on "Capitalism, the Politics of Inequality, and Historical Change" to be held in New York City on August 14, following the annual ASA meeting at Columbia University. Building on this year's ASA's theme of "Interrogating Inequality," we invite paper submissions, which examine historical and contemporary processes of capitalist growth and expansion that heighten or attenuate various forms of inequality, including national, regional, ethno-racial, class, and gender. We are particularly interested in research that explores the political and historical bases.
Please submit papers by May 15, 2013 to the appropriate session organizer listed below. We expect submissions to be competitive. We will notify submitters of the status of their submissions by June 15th, 2013. Further details on registration and venue are forthcoming.
Please see CHS Mini-Conferences page for further details.
Working Paper Series: National Culture and National Habitus
Editors: Andreas Pickel and Gad Yair
The contributions to this series attempt to zero in on this misunderstood and undertheorized area by providing theoretical, conceptual, and/or empirical arguments and evidence with the aim of creating a broader debate on the significance of national culture and national habitus in the global age. Contributions are invited from scholars who would like to participate in such a debate.
