The Rutgers Journal of Sociology: Emerging Areas in Sociological Inquiry provides a forum for graduate students and junior scholars to present well-researched and theoretically compelling review articles on an annual topic in sociology. Each volume features comprehensive commentary on emerging areas of sociological interest. These are critical evaluations of current research synthesized into cohesive articles about the state of the art in the discipline. Works that highlight the cutting edge of the field, in terms of theoretical, methodological, or topical areas, are privileged.
RJS invites submissions for its third annual edition: Inequalities Reinterpreted.
*Papers and abstracts must be submitted by October 31, 2012.
WWe are seeking reviews by authors who take a fresh approach to inequality.
Areas of interest include:
-Blending different sociological and/or interdisciplinary paradigms of inequality
-New perspectives on social hierarchies, stratification and mobility
-How a particular concept in the sociology of inequality has developed over time
-New understandings of global inequality
WWe also seek reviews showing how social actors are redefining inequality or experiencing inequality in a new way. Areas of interest include:
-Political contestations over inequalities
-Emerging lay discourses of inequality
-New forms of collective resistance to inequalities
-Media representations of inequality
-New frames, contexts, forums, and performances of inequality
-Inequalities, publics, and counterpublics
Guidelines: We accept original reviews of relevant research. We do not accept empirical research papers. Papers must not be under review or elsewhere published at the time of submission and should be no more than 10,000 words, including references, notes, tables, figures, acknowledgements and all cover pages. The first page should contain a title, author’s affiliation, a running head and approximate word count. The second page should contain the title, an abstract of no more than 250 words and should not contain the names of the authors. Papers should be double-spaced, using Times New Roman font size 12, with 1.25” margins on all sides. All references should be in ASA Style. All documents should be in Microsoft Word and submitted as email attachments to RJS@sociology.rutgers.edu.
