We are delighted to announce that in addition to the historical and comparative sociology paper sessions at the BSA conference in 2013, the study group will also be holding a plenary event 'Engaging Sociology Globally: Empires and Revolutions'. The speaker will be Michael Mann, Professor of Sociology at UCLA. Michael Mann's books include 'The Sources of Social Power', 'Incoherent Empire', 'Fascists', and 'The Dark Side of Democracy: Explaining Ethnic Cleansing'. He is one of the most influential historical sociologists working today and we believe this is a session not to be missed! Professor Gurminder K Bhambra (University of Warwick) and Dr Jonathan Hearn (University of Edinburgh) will act as discussants.

To celebrate its inauguration, the new Historical and Comparative Sociology Study Group would like to hold a number of sessions at the next BSA conference. We therefore welcome abstract submissions from all areas of sociology that take a historical and/or comparative perspective. In particular, we would like to organise a stream that relates to the planned Michael Mann plenary on Global Empires and Revolutions. Other submissions could include, but should not be limited to, comparative and historical methods and theory, political sociology (from state formation to nationalism), colonialism/postcolonialism, economic sociology, migration or mental health.
We are looking forward to your submissions. Abstracts can be submitted here
Please note that it is essential to write the subject area in capital letters at the top of your abstract e.g. 'I would like this abstract to be submitted to the HISTORICAL AND COMPARATIVE SOCIOLOGY grouping within the CULTURE, MEDIA, SPORT AND CONSUMPTION overarching stream'.
5 October 2012 - Deadline for submission of abstracts.
16 November 2012 - BSA will send email acceptance/rejection as soon as possible after this date.
3-5 April 2013 - BSA Annual Conference takes place at Grand Connaught Rooms, London.
