*Call for Papers *

*The Sociology of Pandemics: Crisis and Transparency in Social Order*

*Sociology of Health & Illness** Monograph 19*

Edited by

Robert Dingwall (Dingwall Enterprises/Nottingham Trent University),

Lily Hoffman (CCNY)

Karen Staniland (University of Salford )



Although the 2009/10 H1N1 influenza pandemic proved not to be a re-run of
the global catastrophe of ‘Spanish flu’ in 1918-20, relevant policy
communities regard it as a valuable rehearsal for the ‘big one’ that most
virologists still expect.  Crises make visible features of social order that
are ordinarily opaque to investigation, as Phil Strong pointed out in his
1990 *SHI* paper on ‘Epidemic Psychology.’ Discussing the parallels between
the early years of the AIDS pandemic and societal reactions to the Black
Death in fourteenth century Europe, he echoes themes articulated in a
variety of mainstream sociological writing: the French ‘sociologie du
spectacle’ of Willener, Touraine and Morin; the sociology of collective
behaviour, with a lineage from Blumer and Shibutani back through Park to
Tarde and LeBon’s critical writings on mass society; and the modern
sociology of disasters, accidents and natural catastrophes, associated with
Turner, Perrow, Vaughan and Clarke.  Pandemics are not, then, simple
challenges to medicine: they raise fundamental issues about social
organization, the functioning and interdependence of institutions and
nations, the role of states and civil society, and the normative assumptions
embedded in each.



We have been invited by the Editorial Board of *Sociology of Health &
Illness* to assemble work, from the broadest possible range of sociologists,
considering pandemics and society.  *SHI* is the leading international
academic journal in its field (5/114 in 2009 ISI Sociology rankings). *SHI
Monographs* appear both as a regular issue of the journal and in book form.
As is usual, submission involves a two –stage process. The first phase is
submission of abstracts – no longer than 800 words – by 1 January 2011.  These
will be reviewed for quality and the balance of the collection.  A shortlist
will be determined by 31 March 2011 and the authors invited to develop
articles – 6-7,000 words including references – for return by 30 July 2011
and full peer review.  The Monograph is expected to be published at the end
of 2012 or early 2013.  All abstracts should be addressed to

The following list suggests some themes that might feature in the monograph
but we would welcome ideas and suggestions from any sub-field within
sociology.

a.     Pandemics and Collective Behaviour

                                       i.     The sociological understanding
of fear, panic, mass emotion

                                     ii.     Responses to risk – implications
for risk society thesis

                                    iii.     Mass communications – old and
new media

b.     Pandemics and Social Order

                                       i.     State and civil society –
corporate interests, families, NGOs and their roles in the crisis

                                     ii.     Pandemics as a problem for
governance

                                    iii.     Pandemics as a challenge to the
state’s use of power – force or self-discipline

c.     Pandemics and health systems – global and national

                                       i.     The challenge of rationing

                                     ii.     Quarantine or liberty

                                    iii.     The responsibilities of health
professionals – self-preservation or self-sacrifice

                                    iv.     The search for evidence-based
intervention and the rise of the modellers – garbage in and garbage out?

d.     The context of history

                                       i.     The impact of 1918 on 2009 –
for good or ill?

                                     ii.     H1N1 and other pandemics – a
pandemic society or one that has forgotten mass disease?
