Virtual Conversion Options for ISA 2022

We know that many of you have a range of questions regarding the upcoming 2022 Nashville ISA convention.  As we have already announced, ISA is working on expanding its virtual capacity for Nashville and we expect to have the ability to convert a limited number of existing in-personal panels and roundtables into virtual sessions. As a result, please read the following completely and carefully.

To implement these potential program changes, later this month we will be unveiling a new tool that will allow panelists to easily coordinate amongst themselves and initiate the request for panel conversion into a virtual setting.  More details about this capability within ISAnet will be provided when that process is opened for use.

Announcing the Incoming 2022-2027 International Political Sociology (IPS) Editorial Team

We’re pleased to announce the incoming 2022-2027 Editorial Team of International Political Sociology, to begin January 1, 2022. As incoming editors, we’re excited to continue the publishing tradition of IPS as the premier venue in international studies for research focused on connections between the international, political and sociological, and how they contribute to power and contestation across socio-political formations. We look forward to continuing the advancement of standards of conceptual, methodological, and rhetorical rigor in international political sociology and the discipline of international studies more generally; to deepening the professional development of colleagues across career stages in international political sociology whether as editors, peer reviewers, or researchers; and contributing to the promotion of equality, diversity, and inclusion within the field by embedding these principles into what we do and how we do it. We welcome an incredible team with the experience, standing, and drive to deliver this vision.
