ORGANIZER(S): International Sociological Association (ISA)
Type: Meeting or Conference Date: 14 - 18 Jul 2020 Location: Brazil (Porto Alegre)
The 2020 ISA Forum will provide sociological analyses of four global challenges (democracy, environment, inequalities, and intersectionality), paying particular attention to their interconnections and to possible solutions. It will discuss how both progressive and conservative actors and movements tackle these challenges and their conflicting perspectives. This Forum will be used to ask how our discipline has been meeting the four global challenges and how it has been transformed by them. What are the contributions of the actors and epistemologies of the South? What are the new trends in global sociology that allow innovative analyses of these challenges? What are the main obstacles we face to tackle these problems? How can innovative sociological analyses contribute to grasp and to face our common problems in the Global Age?
Victor Marchezini and Michèle Companion invite you to join Research Committee-39 (Sociology of Disasters) in Porto Alegre, Brazil! They are looking forward to offering a wide array of presentation opportunities on a variety of timely topics, including emerging risks and disaster risk creation, dimensions of vulnerability, disaster governance, displacement and refugees, climate change and livelihoods, gender, methods and interdisciplinary challenges, community engagement and more!
