A critical approach to the sociology of disability is timely given the challenges facing disabled people under the current coalition government in the UK. This Study Group aims to reclaim the alost sociology of disability

Among the many groups affected by UK welfare reform and benefit cuts, sick and disabled people can arguably lay claim to being â& 128;˜the hardest hitâ& 128;™.

The Discussion list for members of the European Sociological Association's Medical Sociology Research Network

Mailing List of the Research Network 18 (Sociology of Communications and Media Research) of the European Sociological Association

This is a group for members and other academics related to European Sociological Association (ESA) Sexuality Research Network (RN 23). In contrast to the long history of medical and psychological interest in sexuality, the sociological understanding of sexuality is a relatively new phenomenon, spanning a history of some 40 years. However during this time the sociology of sexuality, through both empirical research and theoretical writing, has become an important feature of academic work at both a national and international level. This work has enabled sociology to develop critical alternatives to the essentialism present in mainstream research on sexualities. Similarly, significant links have been made between sexuality and other salient social identities, for example gender, race, class and nationality. Whilst acknowledging the importance of biology, contemporary sociologists of sexuality prioritize the relationship between the individual and society to show the ways in which sexual desires, practices, identities, and attitudes are conceptualized, categorized, deployed, and ultimately regulated through the social institutions and practices of different societies. These areas, together with issues relating to the theorisation of sexuality alongside methodological developments, is an form important foci for ESA Sexuality Research Network.

Official mailinglist of the Critical Political Economy Research Network of the European Sociological Association. http://criticalpoliticaleconomy.net/

The list is open to anyone with an interest in the topic, but it originated in a workshop on Political Community: Authority in the Name of Community hosted by the Centre for Citizenship, Civil Society and Rule of Law (CISRUL) at the University of Aberdeen in June 2014. You can access the full topic description at http://wp.me/PASsb-45. We confirmed in a previous workshop that the term “political community” was appropriate for identifying a core set of issues that interest us at CISRUL, even though it was evident that no term will ever carry all the right connotations and none of the wrong ones. Though we each have our own preferred approach, reflecting the wide range of perspectives in CISRUL, several of us are using the term “political community” for one whose members feel somehow represented within its structures of authority, and thus somehow obliged to their fellow-members to follow its norms and accept its decisions. We prefer, on the whole, to reserve the term “political community” for those that claim a degree of self-sufficiency and we distinguish political communities from political collectives such as trade unions or churches which see themselves as players in a broader political community. In a political community, (more or less) ultimate authority is claimed in the name of some kind of (more or less) encompassing community of members.

The symposium involved conversations between activists and non-activists, as well as academics as activists in order to explore the complex construction of protests as events / events as protests. The event was held at Leeds Metropolitan University in June 2013 (http://protestsandevents.wordpress.com) and covered the following topics: -Conceptualisations of protests as events -The academic/activist interface -Timings and rhythms of protests -Discursive constructions of protests -Protest and political tourism -Mobile assemblages and protests -Embodiments of protest events -Sustaining protests in the face of cultural changes -Protests and sports events -Critical hospitality and protests -Governance and the governmentalities of protest events

The method of Qualitative Comparative Analysis arises both in historical and management research, and in sociological and health research. The aim of QCA is to systematically analyse the possible configurations as a stage of research that follows on from (but also iterates with) a stage of qualitative analysis of cases. In this approach, the 'case' is both the whole set of configurations -- ie the world, really existing as an interlinked whole -- and as a set of comparable 'smaller' objects, e.g. comparing clients, patients, enterprises, or countries. The list exists to promote discussion and debate about QCA and its related variants, such as fuzzy-set social science (Ragin, 2004), realist evaluation (Pawson and Tilley, 1997), and triangulation. <HTML> The method of Qualitative Comparative Analysis arises both in historical and management research, and in sociological and health research.
