Call for Papers: Special Issue of Sociologija, Dedicated to 60th Anniversary of Teaching Sociology at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Belgrade

The publication is scheduled for December 2019. Guest editor is Mina Petrović, Chair of the Department of Sociology, Faculty of Philosophy, University of Belgrade.

This year marks 60th anniversary of the establishment of Cathedra for Sociology within the Department of Philosophy and Sociology at the Faculty of Philosophy in Belgrade in 1959 (since 1990 transformed into Department of Sociology). Marking this jubilee, by publishing a special issue of Sociology we want to encourage reflection on sociology as a specific scientific discipline in several directions:
1. First, in the direction of reflecting the key sociological concepts. The emphasis is put on challenges posed by the increasing dynamism and complexity of contemporary society, questions of adequate contextualization of general theoretical approaches and concepts diversification caused by constant encountering of varied local specifics and standardizing global tendencies. All this intensifies necessary communication between sociology and other disciplines in the field of science, and asks for innovative breakthroughs in the domain of sociological methods.
2. Second, we want to encourage articles dealing with the practical applicability of sociological knowledge and approaches in different domains of social life, and
3. Finally, thoughts in the direction of improving the teaching of sociology at the academic level in accordance with the competencies to be developed in profiling future sociologists.
In line with the above, we invite authors from Serbia and abroad to give their contribution to understanding the complex challenges that sociologists today face in trying to move ahead in the theoretical, methodological, educational and domain of practical politics.
