On this blog we would like to get warmed up for next year’s ISA Forum and invite you to have a look “behind the scenes”. We will introduce you to the members of the Local Organizing Committee and to the history and current state of sociology in Austria and its neighboring countries. As a central topic throughout the posts we will be exploring the theme of the third ISA Forum; “The Futures We Want: Global Sociology and the Struggles for a Better World”. There will be contributions from the Executive Committee and of course from the RCs/WGs/TGs. After all, the ISA Forum is their platform.
You will find all practical information for the Forum on the website in the navigation to the left. Throughout the next year and a half we wish to get to know our guests better – comments, questions and discussions are welcomed and encouraged! To comment you may use your facebook account or simply sign in below. Unless otherwise stated any views or opinions presented are solely those of the author and do not represent those of the ISA or the University of Vienna.
We look forward to a lively debate and to seeing you at the ISA Forum 2016 in Vienna!
