Our now traditional section, "SNA in Russia: Progress and Prospects," was accepted to XXXVII Sunbelt.
International Laboratory for Applied Network Research is organizing a section “SNA in Russia: Progress and Prospects” at the XXXVII SUNBELT Conference, which will be held on May 30 - June 4, 2017, in Beijing (China). At the section we will discuss the reports of the representatives of different disciplines such as sociology, political science, management, etc., devoted to trends in network research in Russia, as well as to comparative network research using Russian and foreign data.
We welcome submissions drawing attention to network research trends currently developing in Russia or on Russian data (or data from BRICS and other developing countries). Because Russian social scientists have had little interaction with the rest of the world for an extended period of time in the 20th century, there has been very little integration of studies done in Russia with those done elsewhere. The potential for additional theory testing and development on data collected in Russia as a developing country has broader implications in a variety of fields; there is potential to test, extend or challenge western theories in all disciplines from sociology to political science to human resources management. We welcome submissions from a broad range of disciplines interested in Russian data, or comparative studies with Russia as a developing country, against the backdrop of similar studies in western world.
Submit your abstracts and join us in Beijing.
Submission deadline - January 10, 2017
See you in China!
