The research cluster will provide an institutional base within the CSA for this growing area of research, help co-ordinate Sociology of Culture panels at the annual meeting of the CSA, and reach out to scholars working in related fields and disciplines. We will establish a website and mailing list to connect cultural sociologists in Canada and abroad, and to aid in the dissemination of research within the scholarly community.
A meeting will be held at Congress 2014 to formally establish the cluster. We invite you to join us; submissions are now open for 18 sessions in the sociology of culture: http://www.csa-scs.ca/files/webapps/csapress/annual-conferences/category/sessions/sociology-of-culture/.
In the meantime, interested faculty, students, and independent scholars can email Kim de Laat (email@example.com; include “CSA Culture Cluster” in the subject line) to join the listserv. We welcome your input into the research cluster’s future.
On behalf of the organizing committee,
