The clergy played a central part in many East-Central and South-Eastern European societies from the eighteenth to twentieth centuries, in more fields than simply that of spiritual shepherding. Their broad spatial dissemination, their contacts with, in theory, all layers of society, their ties to various political environments made them apt intermediaries between the state and communities or individuals.

The Family: An Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference
6th to 7th October 2018
The family is the oldest and most enduring human institution. We have no choice over the family we are born into, and many of us go on to create and shape a family of our own which may mimic our family of origin or differ from it in startling and substantive ways. Because of the ubiquity of the family in all societies, the lack of one is considered so significant that attempts are made in many societies through law, culture and social policy to provide some form of substitute.
Call for papers: Special edition of the Journal of Sociology 2019: Inequalities in the ‘Gig Economy’ era: gender and generational challenges
Please note new extended deadline.
This workshop is jointly organised by Asia Research Institute, National University of Singapore, and Yale-NUS College, Singapore.
Resource-related conflicts have raged in Nigeria for decades. Notable ones include the Niger Delta crises, the Boko Haram insurgency, agitations for an Independent Republic of Biafra, breakaway calls from other sections of the country, and Fulani Herdsmen troubles. Thousands of lives have been lost in these conflicts in the last two decades, vast territories devastated and depopulated, infrastructures destroyed, and millions of Nigerians displaced.
