Transformative Possibilities in the Global South

The 4th annual conference of the Sociology of Development Section March 13-15, 2015 Providence, RI

The conference explores the forces -- politics, movements, state structures, policies and institutions -- that might drive more inclusive, sustainable, and genuinely democratic trajectories of development in the Global South.  A series of plenary sessions and invited keynote speakers will focus on selected conference themes, but other sessions will be organized entirely based on papers that are accepted through this open call.  We encourage all scholars with interest in development, including scholars from fields other than sociology, to consider attending. The conference is open to all, whether you are presenting or not.
