Julie Shayne presents at the International Sociological Association’s (ISA) Forum on Sociology conference in Vienna, Austria


IAS faculty member Julie Shayne presented at this year’s International Sociological Association (ISA) Forum on Sociology in two different sessions. First, her book Taking Risks: Feminist Activism and Research in the Americas (SUNY; 2014 & 2015) was featured at an author-meets-critics session with a handful of other sociologists who conduct transnational feminist research. Additionally, Shayne presented a paper titled “Pushing Back: The Publishing Hierarchy, Activist Scholars, and the Challenge of Solidarity” in which she discussed how academic publishing expectations within research-1 institutions restrict activist scholars and their research agendas.   In both sessions Shayne discussed her new book project, tentatively titled Mobilizing the University: Curriculum, Access, and Solidarity. (To see a call for papers for the book click here.) Both sessions were organized by the ISA’s Women in Society Research Committee.
