Calls for Papers 
Organization Science Special Issue on “Experiments in Organizational Theory” 
Special Issue Editors: Oliver Schilke, Sheen S. Levine, Olenka Kacperczyk, and Lynne G. Zucker 
Submission Window: August 1–September 15, 2019 

We aim to expand organizational theorists’ methodological repertoire with experiments, whether in the laboratory or the field, alone or in combination with other methods. Among their many benefits, experiments excel in identifying causality. They’ve been advocated since the inception of the field, and even more so in recent years. This Special Issue answers this call.

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:http://www.emeraldinsight.com/products/books/series.htm?id=0163-786X


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.

Interdisciplinary Conference on Race
Monmouth University, West Long Branch, NJ
November 14-16, 2019

This conference aims to bring together scholars from multiple disciplinary perspectives to broadly explore the intersections of Race, Memory, and Identity. Contemporary social, political, and media discourses demonstrate the continued need to evaluate the differing ways that race and identity impact memory in connection to history, trauma, loss and remembrance. Understanding memory as both a subject and a tool can act to promote conversations about how memories of the past impress upon individual and collective memory to affectively shape racial and cultural identities. How might we remember the legacies of personal and historical injustices in the present while at the same time shaping the future to allow for an exploration of the persistently entangled forces of remembrance, identity, and justice?

The Monmouth University race conference was founded in 2008 by Dr. Julius Adekunle and Dr. Hettie V. Williams. This conference has brought together scholars from more than fifteen U.S. states, four continents, and twelve nations. Robin D.G. Kelley, Tera Hunter, David Roediger, and Jonathan Holloway have all previously served as keynote speakers for this event. This year, historian Dr. William Sturkey, UNC, Chapel Hill, will deliver the opening plenary lecture. Dr. Qiana WhittedUSC, and other distinguished speakers will also participate in this conference (TBA).

The Interdisciplinary Conference on Race program committee eagerly invites proposals from students, scholars, researchers, artists, and teachers around the world on topics related to the scholarly and/or pedagogical aspects of the conference’s themes.
