Sociology Today (http://sociologytoday.net) is a new journal dedicated to publishing socially significant, well-researched and theoretically compelling research articles and book reviews predominantly in the field of sociology.
For the Inaugural issue we are inviting papers and book reviews on the broad topics relating to the Paradox of Globalization.
Format of the Articles:
Authors must follow the APA style.
From the late 1960s to the early 1980s, the Western world was marked by intense activism and rapid cultural change. Whether due to the student “New Left” or second wave feminism, old certainties came under attack. Yet, there remains an aspect of this general atmosphere that is still poorly understood: the collective demands of national minorities.
This call for papers concerns a conference held on 21-23 June 2018 at the University of Central Lancashire, Preston, UK. The conference proceedings will be published as a special issue in Open Cultural Studies. Authors who cannot attend the conference are invited to present their papers on a video platform or SKYPE. It is also possible to submit a paper to the special issue without presenting at the conference.
