Call for Book Proposals
Navigating Careers in Higher Education
The Susan Bulkeley Butler Center for Leadership Excellence (SBBCLE), Purdue University, West Lafayette (U.S.A) seeks proposals for the book series, Navigating Careers in Higher Education. The series is through Purdue University Press.
Focus of Book Series
The success of diverse faculty entering institutions of higher education is shaped by varying factors at both the individual and institutional levels. Gender, race, class, ethnicity and immigrant generation as well as their intersections and interplay influence experiences and aspirations of faculty members and administrators. Women have earned half or more of all doctoral degrees for almost a decade yet remain disproportionately underrepresented in tenured and leadership positions throughout academia. Anyone in higher education from across the world can submit a book proposal.
Navigating Careers in Higher Education utilizes an intersectional lens to examine and understand how faculty members and administrators navigate careers and their aspirations to succeed. The series will include edited collections and monographs that adopt an interdisciplinary empirical approach that has theoretical, pedagogical, or policy impacts in addition to enabling individuals navigate their own careers. Books may adopt a US or a global focus and topics may include addressing sexism, homophobia, racism, and ethnocentrism; examining the role of higher education institutions; analyzing the effects of growing non-tenure track faculty; addressing the challenges of pursuing a research agenda that may be perceived as controversial; maintaining a life-work balance; and entering leadership positions. Additional topics related to careers in higher education are also welcome.

ASA Session on Expanding Diversity of Biosocial Research: Opportunities and Challenges
Expanding Diversity of Biosocial Research: Opportunities & Challenges
The use of biological data in sociological research has diversified greatly over the years to the point where various measures can now occupy different places in our theoretical models. With this diversity, social scientists are now studying how "what is under the skin" (e.g., genetics, microbiome, etc.) affects a range of outcomes and how social conditions “get under the skin” (e.g., epigenetics, HPA-axis, inflammation, etc.) to affect health and behavior. New techniques using signals “measured on the skin” (e.g., neuroimaging, electrodermal activity, sleep) are shedding light on how different bodily systems function in response to social circumstances. At the same time, critics question the underlying meaning and interpretations of such measures and raise concerns about biological essentialism and the representation (or lack) of marginalized populations in this research. The papers in this session demonstrate the promises and limitations of biologically-oriented data for understanding how social circumstances affect population health.

Research in Social Movements, Conflicts and Change, a peer-reviewed volume published by Emerald Group Publishing, is inviting submissions for Volume 41 of the series. This RSMCC volume has a special focus on non-state actors and political conflicts but it will also attend to the broader themes of the series. Volume editor Julie Mazzei (Kent State University) welcomes submissions that fall within one of two areas: (1) research focused on the roles and motivations of non-state actors in conflicts or post-conflict situations in the post-Cold War era; or (2) research generally relevant to understanding the dynamics of social movements, conflicts, or change. We are particularly interested in research focusing on the motivations and interests of non-state violent actors (NSVAs) in the post-Cold War era; the role of identity and/or ideology in the conflicts or resolutions of so-called “new wars;” the impact of NSVAs in conflict and/or peace-making; and the ways in which IGOs and NGOs interact with NSVAs in conflicts or post-conflict zones. RSMCC boasts quick turn-around times, generally communicating peer review-informed decisions within 10-12 weeks. For more information, please visit the RSMCC website: https://www.emerald.com/insight/
The official journal of ASA’s Section for Racial and Ethnic Minorities, Sociology of Race and Ethnicity will publish the highest quality, cutting-edge sociological research on race and ethnicity regardless of epistemological, methodological, or theoretical orientation. While the study of race and ethnicity has derived from a broad and deep tradition of interdisciplinarity, sociology indeed has often been at the forefront of scholarly understanding of the dynamics of race and ethnicity; yet, there exists no journal in sociology devoted to bringing together this important theoretical, empirical, and critical work. Sociology of Race and Ethnicity will provide a fulcrum upon which sociologically-centered work will swing as it also seeks to provide new linkages between the discipline of sociology and other disciplines and areas where race and ethnicity are central components.
