Call for Submissions: Teaching Sociology for FGWC Students

Call for Papers: Special Issue of Teaching Sociology on Teaching Sociology by, for, and about First-Generation and Working-Class Persons

Responding to the work of the ASA’s Task Force on First-Generation and Working-Class Persons in Sociology, for this special issue Teaching Sociology seeks Conversation Essays, Teaching Notes, Original Articles, and Book, Film, and Podcast Reviews focused on teaching sociology by, for, and about people from FGWC backgrounds. Specifically, we request submissions that address FGWC issues in three particular areas: student support, course content, and faculty experiences. 

For the full call and a list of possible topics go to:

With our team of co-editors from a variety of FGWC backgrounds, we recognize that people from FGWC backgrounds enrich and strengthen our courses, the discipline of sociology, and our educational institutions. We encourage individuals who represent the full breadth and diversity of intersectional identities to propose contributions, and are also particularly interested in contributions from educators who teach at regional comprehensive universities, community colleges, and other broad-access and/or teaching-intensive institutions

Initial abstract submissions due February 1, 2022

All submissions for and questions about this special issue should be sent to the guest editors at their shared e-mail address
