GD 1.2 - November 2010

Editorial

The second issue of Global Dialogue features a debate between two very different understandings of global sociology. Ulrich Beck, author of Risk Society, advances the cosmopolitan turn with a critique of methodological nationalism that, he claims, pervades sociology. Our frameworks, he says, simply cannot handle the global issues we confront. On the other side, Raewyn Connell, renown feminist and author of Southern Theory, considers Beck’s cosmopolitan sociology as but another expression of a northern outlook. It misses the multiple voices of the south to which she calls attention. In this issue of Global Dialogue we do hear from Brazil, Bangladesh, China, Kyrgyzstan, Indonesia, Belarus, Poland and Germany. And if these voices, and they are often cries, sound a common theme it is that sociology positions itself at the cross-roads of national and global forces. We will continue this dialogue over the next four years, particularly as it applies to inequality and exclusion in a global context, the theme of the Yokohama Congress in 2014 for which, I’m pleased to report, we now have a wonderful program committee (see p.4). Once again I must thank our dedicated team of translators...
