Call for Submissions: The 2023 Annual Junior Theorists Symposium! 

​SUBMISSION DEADLINE: March 1st, 11:59pm Eastern Time

The 17th Junior Theorists Symposium (JTS) is now open to new submissions. The JTS is a conference featuring the work of emerging sociologists engaged in theoretical work, broadly defined. Sponsored in part by the Theory Section of the ASA, the conference has provided a platform for the work of early-career sociologists since 2005. We especially welcome submissions that broaden the practice of theory beyond its traditional themes, topics, and disciplinary function.

The symposium will be held as an in-person event on Thursday, August 17 prior to the 2023 ASA Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, PA.  

It is our honor to announce that Claire Decoteau (University of Illinois-Chicago), Greta Krippner (University of Michigan), and Victor Ray (University of Iowa) will serve as discussants for this year’s symposium. Daniel Hirschman (Cornell University), winner of the 2022 Junior Theorist Award, will deliver a keynote address. Finally, the symposium will include an after-panel titled “Why Theorize?” This panel will seek to bring scholars, thinkers, and doers into conversation to explore convergences, tensions, and a range of possible responses to the question: why theorize?

We invite all ABD graduate students, recent PhDs, postdocs, and assistant professors who received their PhDs from 2019 onwards to submit up to a three-page précis (800-1000 words). The précis should include the key theoretical contribution of the paper and a general outline of the argument.

Successful précis from last year’s symposium can be viewed here.

Please note that the précis must be for a paper that is not under review or forthcoming at a journal.

As in previous years, there is no pre-specified theme for the conference. Papers will be grouped into sessions based on emergent themes and discussants’ areas of interest and expertise. We invite submissions from all substantive areas of sociology, we especially encourage papers that are works-in-progress and would benefit from the discussions at JTS.

Please remove all identifying information from your précis and submit it via the Google form below. Wendy Li (University of Wisconsin-Madison) and Jon Shaffer (Johns Hopkins University) will review the anonymized submissions. You can also contact them at with any questions. By early April, we will extend 9 invitations to present at JTS 2023. Please plan to share a full paper by July 7, 2023. 

*Presenters should plan to attend in-person, though this may change based on the Covid-19 pandemic.

If you have any issues uploading your document, please send a copy of your précis with all identifying information removed to Please include your name and affiliation (University and Department) in the body of the email.

Call for Papers: The Third Global Carework Summit, June 2023

The Third Global Carework Summit

“Carework in uncertain times: convergences and divergences around the world.”

June 7-9, 2023

University of Costa Rica, Costa Rica

The Carework Network is organizing a bilingual (Spanish and English) three-day conference to bring together carework researchers, scholars and stakeholders, from across the globe. Submissions are now open.

We are living in times of uncertainty along multiple, intersecting dimensions: social, economic, political, and ecological. This has long been evident in Latin America and other regions in the global south. The COVID-19 pandemic and its reverberating shocks have both deepened uncertainty and made it more visible around the world.

How does uncertainty shape the understanding and social organization of carework? How does putting carework at the center help us imagine sustainable futures where care is a collective responsibility?

What are the convergences in how carework is understood and organized across the globe? What are the divergences, given varied capacities, cultures, histories and experiences in different countries and regions?

We invite submissions that move beyond binaries of paid and unpaid care, probe intersections of individuals, family, community, market and state, and analyze the interlocking inequalities of gender, class, race and migration. We encourage analyses of convergences and divergences in the understanding and social organization of carework across regions. We also welcome approaches that analyze a specific sectoral or geographic context.

We welcome submissions in English or Spanish, from all academic disciplines, advocacy or non-profit organizations, and public and private sector organizations. We also encourage participation by undergraduate and graduate students.

All submissions should include title, name, contact information for author(s), institutional affiliation and status (student, faculty, etc). All submissions should include objectives or research questions; methodology, geographical or sectoral context, main findings and conclusions.

How to submit:

Authors and organizers should submit a proposal for a paper, panel or public dialogue to (by e-mail only) no later than October 1, 2022. If selected, you will be notified in December and expected to submit a full paper by April 1, 2023.

We welcome proposals for the following submission types:
  • Individual paper proposals should include an extended abstract of 1,000 words.
  • Fully constituted panel proposals should describe the topic and relationship between papers in no more than 1,000 words and provide 500 word abstracts for each paper. Panels should have 3-5 papers. We encourage panels that bring together participants from different institutions, countries and regions. We particularly encourage and will give priority to panels that include participants from the global South and North instead of from just one context.
  • Public dialogue proposals will communicate research findings and arguments in a concise manner that is suitable to a nonacademic audience. These dialogues will take the form of 5 minute presentations followed by ample discussion and serve as a bridge among scholars, policy makers, stakeholders, and the broader public. Proposals should include an abstract of 500 words.
Topics may include but are not limited to:
  • The impact of global health crises on carework
  • How economic and political uncertainties shape carework through privatization outsourcing, or informalization by the state
  • How neoliberal policies individualize risk
  • The longstanding need for more state responsibility for carework
  • How the erosion of carework conditions has gendered, racialized and classed implications
  • Migrants’ transnational carework
  • Gendered divisions of care provision in families and communities
  • How to defamilize care to achieve gender equality through new visions of fatherhood, community support, and state responsibility
  • Labor organizing to improve conditions of care work
  • How environmental crises impact the conditions of care work. And how quality carework might create a more sustainable world.

Call for Papers: The Toolkit of Emerging Autocrats Session at World Congress of Sociology 2023

Dear colleagues, 

We invite you to submit your abstracts for the session “The Toolkit of Emerging Autocrats” (the abstract is below) to present at the International Sociological Association’s XX World Congress of Sociology. The conference will take place in Melbourne, Australia, from June 25 to July 1, 2023


How are the emerging autocrats grabbing and maintaining power across the world? Many aspiring autocrats share strategies and tools to undermine democratic processes. These strategies include changing political institutions, rewriting constitutions, silencing opposition, spreading misinformation, and crafting divisions by instigating racism, nativism, and nationalism. Through a global and comparative lens, the session panelists will examine the tools, conditions, and mechanisms that allow strongmen to successfully undermine democratic traditions and constrain civil rights (
