The ISA RC28 invites researchers to contribute to its annual summer conference to be held at Columbia University in New York City on August 8-10, 2017, with registration and a reception taking place on the evening of August 7. We expect contributions on the broad themes of social inequality, social stratification, and social mobility. Papers relevant to the theme of the conference, “Increasing Mobility and Reducing Inequality: What Guidance is Provided by Sociological Research”, are particularly welcome.
Participants should submit a title, an extended abstract (800–1000 words), and up to 5 keywords. The extended abstract should include a clear description of the research question, theoretical framework, data, analytical strategy, and main findings. Submission of a full paper in place of an extended abstract is, of course, also acceptable. Please specify the suggested type of contribution: oral presentation or poster presentation. All submitted contributions will be subject to a peer review process. The type of contribution might be subject to change by the program committee.
The deadline for submission of abstracts is closed as of February 15, 2017.
The deadline for submission of the full papers is August 1, 2017.
