Making Connections: Bridging Generations

Thursday, 19 July 2018: 19:30-20:50

Language: English

This session with simultaneously run round tables will provide
opportunities for early career sociologists and graduate students to
engage with established sociologists in an informal setting.
Starting with some introductory remarks from the featured
sociologist at each roundtable, the session will address questions
from junior sociologists about matters that concern practitioners of
the discipline - teaching, doing research, publishing and
performing service tasks - and the challenges entailed in
negotiating academic terrains. The ISA is committed to supporting
emerging sociologists and this session is one small but important
initiative at the Congress to foster and enhance dialogue and
debates among a global community of junior and senior
sociologists. The remit of the session is to contribute to the
professional development of early career sociologists – including
graduate students – and to share experiences of academia as
practitioners. The session organizers will select up to 100 early career and
graduate students who will attend the XIX World Congress of
Sociology. Eligibility to apply and invitations will be announced
