Covid-19 as global social actor: Social transformation in the wake of the Pandemic

Please join ISA's Interdisciplinary Studies Section on February 17th, 2021 as it hosts a webinar on “Covid-19 as global social actor: Social transformation in the wake of the Pandemic.” The Covid-19 virus is becoming a major social actor, precipitation transformations in social practices and institutions both within states and globally. We are hearing about the economic impact of the pandemic, but less about the social transformations that it affects. Presenters will address particular social effects drawing implications for more widespread global effects. Issues addressed (among others): technology innovation in India, public health infrastructure in Greece, science in Brazil, and the politics of social support systems in Russia.

CISS/IDSS Bologna 2017 - Conference Summary

Our section held a very successful conference on Cooperation and Contestation in World Politics, in collaboration with the School of Political Sciences and the Department of Political and Social Sciences of the University of Bologna. The Conference took place in Bologna, Italy, June 28-30. We had a total of 29 sessions (1 plenary and 28 panels) with 111 participants. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our colleagues Steve Rosow and Tina Mavrikos-Adamou for all their work and assistance in the preparation of this conference. We plan to produce a book based on selected papers presented at the conference and we are in communication with a publisher who has expressed a strong interest in this project.
