CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: The New Demography of Development--ISI World Congress of Sociology
The International Sociological Association (ISA) World Congress of Sociology on “Facing an Unequal World: Challenges for Global Sociology” will take place in Yokohama, Japan, 13-19 July 2014. As part of this conference, the Research Committee on Social Transformations & Sociology of Development (RC09) is calling for abstracts on “The New Demography of Development”:
Development, a complex and contested concept, often refers to notions of progress and improvement that are conditioned by class, culture, geography, history, relations of power, and demography. Population composition and change are central to development processes. This session will explore the role of demography in a changing, and increasingly global, context of development. We welcome papers that investigate new, multiple and variegated interactions between development, population change, mortality, fertility, and migration. Papers using qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methods are welcome, and papers employing a comparative, or multi-sited, framework are especially encouraged.
Deadline: September 30, 2013
