What Kind of Futures in Academia? Postdoctoral Experiences In this series of interviews we hope to illuminate for our readers what a future in academia might look like and what considerations they may wish to take into account while they pursue careers in the field of socio-economics. The Futures of Solidarity: A Discussion with Professors Virginia Doellgast (Cornell) and Michael McCarthy (Marquette) Is solidarity a thing of the past? Or will it carry forward into the future, and if so, how? What are the institutional and social arenas for and forms of contemporary solidarity? In this feature, editors Agatha Slupek and Assaf Bondy discuss these issues with Professors Virginia Doellgast (Cornell, USA) and Michael McCarthy (Marquette University, USA), respectively.

Deadline 15th March Note from an Editor: Futurity and The Politics of Imagination Whose policy proposals, whose political programs, whose visions for a future society can be imagined; that is, conceived of as possible, as enact-able, and not merely dismissed as outlandish and unfathomable?

SASE’s 4th RISE Regional Conference, Productive Transformation, Regional Asymmetries, and Social Exclusion in Ibero-America, will be hosted by the Universidad Nacional de Costa Rica from 20-22 November 2019. Interview with SASE President Akos Rona-Tas I grew up in Budapest and began college as a literature major interested in literary theory and philosophy, but I soon became drawn to sociology. At that time sociology was a young discipline in Hungary, as it had been banned for decades as a bourgeois pseudo-science by the Communist state.
