GD 13.3 - December 2023

This issue begins with an interview with the renowned feminist academic and activist Rita Segato. During the conversation, we discuss her contributions on issues of gender, violence and coloniality and how to enhance South-South and global dialogues on these issues. Here Segato also shares her views on contemporary topics, such as authoritarian setbacks and the internationalisation of the feminist movement. The ISA gains a special section in this issue. After 40 years of intense dedication to our association as its Executive Secretary, Izabela Barlinska retires. Five former presidents (Margaret Archer, Michel Wieviorka, Michael Burawoy, Margaret Abraham and Sari Hanafi) and the current one (Geoffrey Pleyers), recently elected in Melbourne, pay a well-deserved tribute to her.

GD 13.1 - April 2023

At the end of 2022, I was thrilled to hear from Eloísa Martín, ISA Vice-President for Publications, about my appointment as the new editor. The previous editorial team, led by Brigitte Aulenbacher and Klaus Dörre, ensured a smooth transition. I wish to thank them and their assistant editors Raphael Deindl, Johanna Grubner, Walid Ibrahim and Christine Schickert for their support and fantastic work over the past years. Professors Aulenbacher and Dörre will remain involved, along with founding editor Michael Burawoy, as consulting editors.
