Recognizing the multiple modalities of communication and how presentations enhance our sociological understanding of the complex realities of the 21st century, Humanity and Society , the journal of the Association for Humanist Sociology, announces the introduction of media reviews. We invite reviewers of sociological messages in photography, web-based art, websites, popular films and documentaries, radio broadcasts, and multimedia presentations. We also invite suggestions for media reviews. Please note that book reviews can be sent to our book review editor at RJ-Hironimus-Wendt@wiu.edu.
As a generalist journal, Humanity & Society publishes media reviews on a wide variety of topics. We are particularly interested in media presentations that are relevant to humanist sociology. Humanist sociology is broadly defined as a sociology that views people not only as products of social forces but also as agents in their lives and the world. We are committed to a sociology that contributes to a more humane, equal, and just society.
The journal welcomes reviewers from diverse backgrounds and with diverse perspectives, including activists, graduate students, and practitioners in fields other than sociology. Potential reviewers are also encouraged to contact the Editor with suggestions for reviews in their areas of interest and expertise.
