Social Knowledge: Heritage, Challenges, Perspectives

Publications and video-tapes of the ISA Regional Conferences

International Sociological Association organized in 1996 and 1997 ten regional conferences around the globe, each addressing the theme of the recently held XIV World Congress of Sociology (Montreal, July 1998): Social Knowledge: Heritage, Challenges, Perspectives. The ten regional conferences each has produced a small book, discussing the state of sociology and its future not in the region but as seen from the region. There was also commissioned a special volume on this question as seen from the point of view of world feminism, and moreover a Southeast Asia volume was prepared after the Congress.

These volumes collectively represent a genuine insight into the range of views about sociology as it has developed in the different regions of the world. A world debate infused with the background of reading these 12 volumes may help us make a significant step forward in the construction of a genuinely international mode of analysis and create a common baseline of contributions by sociologists from around the globe.
