Newly established platform associated with the International Sociological Association (ISA)

We are a newly established platform associated with the International Sociological Association (ISA). We are excited to present different opportunities for sociologists who have research interests and experience in teaching sociology. The Thematic Group of Sociological Teaching (TG09) seeks to facilitate transnational discussions and exchange in research findings on teaching practices of sociology, and insights of teaching which our members have cultivated throughout their careers. To learn more and join, please visit our website. We are currently inviting session proposals for the XX ISA World Congress of Sociology in Melbourne, Australia, June 25-July 1, 2023.

The conference will be facilitated in hybrid format, and we welcome proposal from those who wish to attend in-person or facilitate sessions remotely. Please email all session proposals to Annette Tézli ( and Katherine Lyon ( by May 1st, 2022.  

We are currently inviting submissions for our e-publication Pedagogy Series which is published in January, June, and October. It is set up in collaboration with the ISA’s Social Justice and Democratization Space (SJDS). Of its three issues, our international contributors have submitted theoretical work, empirical studies, reflections, and commentaries related to the broader fields of teaching sociology. We are currently still accepting submissions for the January edition, which focuses on Collaborative and Applied Teaching Practices. 

Themes for the June and October 2022 editions are open, so we invite you to submit any work related to sociological teaching. The deadline for the June 2022 edition is May 15, 2022. Our Global Repository of Teaching Sociology aims to be a rich hub of sociological teaching exemplars, syllabi, teaching practices (including integration of theory and practice from different world contexts) and strategies, lesson plans and assessments, teaching philosophies and dossiers. We would like to invite you and any interested colleagues to join our platform.
