2020, issue 44, Dagmar Danko, Gary Pollock and Sue Scott: Manchester clearly had a great deal to offer; Brexit hadn’t happened; the pound was weak against the Euro; the sun shone and it hardly rained at all! We had a total of 3149 registrations with 3046 delegates on site, making it the third largest ESA conference ever coming very close to Prague and Athens.
2018, issue 41, Dagmar Danko and Howard S. Becker: The US-American sociologist Howard S. Becker is the author of foundational studies such as Outsiders (1963) and Art Worlds (1982). He has also published best practice guides concerned with doing sociology, such as Writing for Social Scientists (1986) and Tricks of the Trade (1998). Since the turn of the millennium he has become more and more interested in questions raised by the sociology of science.
2018, issue 41, Dagmar Danko: In October 2016, I took up the position of Executive Coordinator at the European Sociological Association. For me, a true European, joining an international organisation acting for and operated by academics from some 50+ countries might have seemed unsurprising, but there is hardly anything coincidental about me working for the ESA.
