Women in high-profile industries are speaking out against pervasive cultures of gender discrimination. The ‘MeToo’ movement begun over a decade ago in the […] PhDs in Socio-Economics: New Research Paths Earning one’s PhD is one of the main hurdles in an academic career. While the title gives access to otherwise unobtainable jobs, the work itself can be forgotten; in the rush to publish articles and search for a new academic position, the thesis itself can easily lose out. We wanted to give a bit of […] An Interview with Professor Sylvia Walby Sylvia Walby is Professor of Sociology and Gender Research at the University of Lancaster. Her recent book Crisis (Polity, 2015) is a concise analysis of the present social, political, and economic moment in the UK, the EU, and advanced capitalist societies more broadly.

But it is perhaps less well-known that for several years, regional SASE conferences have been taking place in Latin America.  SASE sponsored its third biennial Ibero-American regional conference at Universidad […] Book Review Too Few Women at the Top by Kumiko Nemoto Ithaca NY, ILR Press, 2016, 296p. Too Few Women at the Top is a must-read both for those interested in gender segregation in the workplace and those concerned with Japanese political economy. Kumiko Nemoto has succeeded in treating both issues in her book. We can discern […] Interview with SASE President Gary Herrigel   “In general, I am more interested in identifying possibilities for inclusion and change rather than being satisfied with more conventional left and social democratic concerns for “critique” or identifying how bad capitalism is now or how even worse it is becoming.”     Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your intellectual […] Meet the Editors The SASE Newsletter is created by a dynamic group of graduate students and postdoctoral researchers from both sides of the Atlantic, aided and abetted by the SASE staff.
