End-of-January announcements

Hello Fellow CBSM Section Members!

Here are some announcements.   Also, please keep in mind the section awards, whose committees are listed on the CBSM website–http://cbsm-asa.org/

1. Call for Applications, The Sociological Initiatives Foundation—Tina Fetner.

2.  Special Issue of Social Movement Studies—John Krinsky.

All the best,


1. Call for Applications, The Sociological Initiatives Foundation—Tina Fetner.

http://www.sifoundation.org/ It offers small grants to academic/activist partnerships working on specific social change goals. I have never heard of this foundation before, but it looks like it’s doing great stuff. Would you mind including it in your next announcement to the section?

2.  Special Issue of Social Movement Studies—John Krinsky.

Social Movement Studies has just published a special issue on Networks and Social Movements, co-edited by John Krinsky and Nick Crossley. It is available to read for free (for the moment, at least).

Here’s the link.


3. CFP, New Media Symposium—Jennifer Earl.
