The Michigan Sociological Review (MSR) invites submissions for Vol. 31 (Fall 2017). The deadline for submission is May 30, 2017. To submit a manuscript, send an email to the editor, Brigitte Bechtold, at firstname.lastname@example.org, with two files attached: one that has all author identification removed, and a second file with author contact information, biography of no more than 100 words, and any author acknowledgements. All files should be in .doc format, using the ASA citation style.
The MSR is the official, peer-reviewed publication of the Michigan Sociological Association. We welcome previously unpublished manuscripts that explore a broad range of theoretical, methodological, and empirical questions in sociology, or teaching sociology in Michigan. The journal also publishes research and pedagogical comments, reviews of books, films, videos, educational software, and the keynote address of the annual meeting of the MSA. The maximum length is 30 pages (double-spaced) for articles, and 5000 words for other materials.
California State University, Sacramento professors Jacqueline Brooks, Heidy Sarabia, and Aya K. Ida invite authors to submit a chapter to their new undergraduate reader Race and Ethnicity: Moving from Sociological Imagination to Sociological Mindfulness. This work is under contract with Cognella Academic Publishing.
The reader is designed for students in undergraduate race and ethnic inequalities courses, with the goal of enhancing critical discussions through sociological mindfulness. The sociological mindful framework engages readers, holding them accountable for the development of her or his sociological consciousness. We hope to encourage students to become problem solvers in the arena of race discourse, rather than passive observers or casual critics. The overall approach employs four unique angles: fresh narratives on current issues of race and ethnic inequality; the bridging of larger macro-level explanations with smaller micro-level experiences; the connection of sociological theory with sociological research; and the development of critical debate and analysis with an emphasis on self-reflection.
We are soliciting powerful, engaging works that offer a healthy discussion of specific topics within the arena of race and ethnic inequalities. Submitted chapters should help students define, understand, and apply important concepts, theories, and perspectives within the field. Each work should prepare students for higher levels of learning, such as analysis, evaluation, and creativity.
All full submissions are due June 16, 2017. Please e-mail your submission to email@example.com.
Authors will be notified of their acceptance no later than December 14, 2017.
