American Sociological Association

Global and Transnational Sociology

The Section on Global and Transnational Sociology seeks to facilitate communication, expand networks, and provide a forum for intellectual exchange and debate among global and transnational sociologists, scholars, and teachers.  Appropriate to its name, the Section also seeks engagement with scholars from all parts of the world and from disciplines other than sociology that address global and transnational issues.  The Section welcomes members of all theoretical persuasions and substantive interests that are encompassed by the broad rubrics of global and transnational research.
