Call for Proposals in "New Voices in Sociological Theory and Methodology"
The editors of a new volume tentatively entitled New Voices in Sociological Theory and Methodology invite chapter proposals of up to 500 words from sociologists who have received their Ph.D.s within the last 10 years and are pursuing new directions in sociological theory and methodology. Submission deadline is November 1, 2009.
The editors invite the new generation of sociologists to evaluate and critique the traditional theoretical and methodological approaches taken by twentieth-century sociologists, and to offer suggestions for new paths forward. The volume is intended as a supplemental text—but also as an alternative text—for undergraduate and graduate courses in contemporary theory and research methodology. It will include separate sections devoted to theory and to methodology; each section will discuss the nature, assumptions, and future of traditional perspectives.
The overarching goal of the volume is to move students beyond current textbooks’ treatments of theory and methods by offering them a look at the trends of the sociology of tomorrow. Therefore, the editors encourage prospective contributors to think creatively, critically, and philosophically about sociological theory and methods, and to propose chapters on a variety of topics that they consider important, timely, and in most dire need of a critical examination.
To submit a chapter proposal or for further information, please contact the editors: Ieva Zake (firstname.lastname@example.org)and Michael DeCesare (email@example.com)
