Authors: even though there is no editor
we continue accepting submissions. See below.
Focus:
Manuscripts may examine teaching on any of the 77 specialty areas as currently identified by the 2005 American Sociological Association Council from a historical, contemporary or historical-contemporary perspective. In addition, manuscripts can be submitted in an area not currently identified in the listing of specialty areas. Manuscripts can address the following questions:
  1. Should undergraduate and graduate sociology departments encourage instruction in conventional curriculums or should they encourage instruction in more interdisciplinary curriculums?
  2. Do undergraduate and graduate research methodology courses encourage students to examine the social world or do such courses encourage the collection of standardized data?
  3. Are undergraduate and graduate students required to take courses which examine the contribution of classical social theorists (e.g., Max Weber, Karl Marx; Georg Simmel) as well as contemporary social theorists?
  4. Are sociology departments encouraging graduate students to successfully complete foundational courses in both qualitative research methodology and quantitative research methodology? What are the most effective computer programs which can be used to supplement methodology courses and/or analyze qualitative and quantitative data?
  5. Considering the context of globalization, should sociology departments encourage or require students to successfully complete courses which address this theoretical and substantive area?
  6. How is the discipline of sociology valued by college and university administrations? Are there current attempts to eliminate, reduce, maintain, or expand sociology departments? Are on-line courses being offered by sociology departments? What are the current perceptions of sociology majors on college and university campuses held by faculty and administrators?
  7. Are the historical and contemporary contributions of sociologists of color and female sociologists being adequate covered in sociology department curriculums?
  8. Are sociology departments preparing students to enter academic and non-academic settings? What efforts are sociology departments taking to facilitate placement of their students in graduate school, academia (i.e., teaching) and non-academic occupations?
  9. Is sociology still the “science of society?” What are the current debates and new developments in the discipline? Have there been theoretical advances in the discipline? What recent and salient empirical findings have been published and did the findings have implications for civil society?
Who may submit:
Manuscripts are welcomed from graduate students and college faculty who have created and implemented effective methods to teach sociology, whether in the traditional classroom, through on-line courses, or a combination of class meetings and web-based work. In addition, manuscripts are welcomed from graduate students and college faculty who are currently conducting research in an area of sociology. Submissions may be in the form of research reports, case studies, research in progress, or theoretical papers. Please identify your submission with keyword: SOCIOLOGY

Submission deadline:
any time until the end of May 2007; see details for other deadline options like early, regular, and short.
