ISA RC17 Newsletter July 2022

Dear RC17 members,

Our Calls for Abstracts for the hybrid ISA World Congress of Sociology are out! RC17 has open calls for 13 different themes, which you will find below. At the Congress we will also organize a number of additional sessions including an author-meets-critics session featuring Richard Badham on “Ironies of Organizational Change”, a Panel debate on “Does Organizational Sociology Still Have Anything to Offer?” and an early career workshop for Agrifood Scholars. We are moreover delighted that RC17 is co-organizing an integrative session on “Prosumption in Post-COVID-19 societies”, which will be featured in a particular manner in the conference program. Overall, we are very happy that we co-organize nine formats together with RC’s 02, 18, 23, 24, 31, 40, 46, 52, 56 as well as TG04.
