While the European SSSI Conference is still in progress at the University of Salford in the UK, a Virtual Issue of Symbolic Interaction has been announced. Edited by Emma Engdahl (University of Gothenburg) and Thaddeus Müller (Lancaster University) the Virtual Issue explores the European Contribution to Symbolic Interactionism. To start the Virtual Issue the editorial has just been published as “Editor’s Choice” on Early View of Symbolic Interaction.
In their editorial Engdahl and Müller provide an overview of the growing number of articles from European authors in the journal over the past decades and examine the spread of articles across different countries. They also make some suggestions for the reasons for these developments. In a later post on this blog I will link to the articles that Engdahl and Müller selected for the Virtual Issue.
