The thematic group Sociology of Risk and Uncertainty (SoRU) invites scholars to submit abstracts to its working sessions within the IV Forum of the International Sociological Association (February 23-27, 2021; online).

Although not exclusive, this extraordinary call is expected to address the critical intersections between risk and social production of the Covid-19 pandemic in terms of the following axes:

– Medicalization of sociability

– Migration, risk and reconfiguration of human mobility

– Languages and narratives of the pandemic and risks

– Risk, inequality and intersectionality in contexts of social vulnerability

– Scientific uncertainty, post-truth and risk policy

– Risk communication

– Social construction of biological and ecological threats

– Risk management practices and uncertainty governance

We welcome original theoretical and empirical papers, research notes, analytical proposals and critical commentaries about the social foundations and scope of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Please note that this extraordinary call will be open only three weeks from Monday, October 26th to Thursday, November 12th.

Submissions will be processed on line, via ISA’s website at:
