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.
