GD 9.1 - April 2019

Editorial

At the XIX ISA World Congress of Sociology in Toronto, Canada, this past July, Sari Hanafi was elected as the new President of the International Sociological Association. This first 2019 issue of Global Dialogue opens with Hanafi’s theoretical vision for the ISA in the course of his term. Here he argues for combining postcolonial and post-authoritarian approaches to lead a conversation around a new paradigm for pluralism in this age of multiple modernities. Along with the rise of right-wing populist parties across the globe, sociological debates on class have gained new prominence. The first symposium of this issue reflects this newfound interest in questions of class formation and class relations around the world with contributions examining current research in Latin America, the United States, Germany, and Southeast Asia. In conjunction with this research, the symposium explores the implications for the rise of poverty and inequality. For decades, generating economic growth has been at the center of most economic activity as well as of policy initiatives and scholarly discussions. Over the last years, a growing number of activists, but also sociologists and economists have...

At the XIX ISA World Congress of Sociology in Toronto, Canada, this past July, Sari Hanafi was elected as the new President of the International Sociological Association. This first 2019 issue of Global Dialogue opens with Hanafi’s theoretical vision for the ISA in the course of his term. Here he argues for combining postcolonial and post-authoritarian approaches to lead a conversation around a new paradigm for pluralism in this age of multiple modernities.

Along with the rise of right-wing populist parties across the globe, sociological debates on class have gained new prominence. The first symposium of this issue reflects this newfound interest in questions of class formation and class relations around the world with contributions examining current research in Latin America, the United States, Germany, and Southeast Asia. In conjunction with this research, the symposium explores the implications for the rise of poverty and inequality.

For decades, generating economic growth has been at the center of most economic activity as well as of policy initiatives and scholarly discussions. Over the last years, a growing number of activists, but also sociologists and economists have started an impressive debate on the limits of growth. They discuss the future, and in some regions the possible end, of permanently high growth rates as well as the ecologically and socially destructive effects of this one-sided focus on GDP growth. Both scholarly and activist debates also examine possible alternatives, and most prominently the idea of “degrowth,” a concept that has not remained unchallenged. The texts of the second symposium reflect the discussions surrounding the future of growth and a possible degrowth alternative.

Considering the contemporary global conjuncture, Ariel Salleh argues in her theoretical contribution for a new sociological class analysis that unites mothers, peasants, and gatherers in regard of their material skills in enabling life-on-Earth. With a historical reflection on the debates surrounding ecofeminism, she calls for a critical sociology and the notion of an embodied materialism.

The end of many of Latin America’s leftist governments coincides with the rise of right-wing, sometimes authoritarian governments in many other regions of the world. Here scholars from Brazil, Colombia, Turkey, and Poland examine the historical and political developments of right-wing populism.

Three articles are included in this issue’s Open Section: Johann Bacher, Julia Hofmann, and Georg Hubmann present the recently published doctoral thesis of Marie Jahoda and remind us what we, as social scientists and politically engaged citizens can learn from her life and work. Elísio Estanque and António Casimiro Ferreira give us an insight into Portugal’s new political-labor configuration under the most recent post-Troika period, while Global Dialogue’s Bengali Team introduce themselves and their work.
