Guest Posts Coming in 2009
We are pleased to announce that, alongside the daily posts of news items, starting in 2009 each month we will feature a guest post from a notable Sociologist. These posts will be lengthier than a standard post and will be on a wide range of subjects within Sociology. Our first guest post will go up (all going well) in the first week of January.
We are very lucky to have Dr. Bryan S. Turner as our first guest poster. Bryan is the research leader of the cluster on globalization and religion in the Asia Research Institute at the National University of Singapore. He is the founding editor of the journals Citizenship Studies, Journal of Classical Sociology (with John O’Neil), and Body & Society (with Mike Featherstone). His publications include The Blackwell Companion to Social Theory, second edition (Blackwell, 1996), The Cambridge Dictionary of Sociology (2006), and Vulnerability and Human Rights (2006). He will be writing for us on the subject of religion.
