Peeter Selg and Tõnis Saarts contribute chapters in a Palgrave Handbook


In 2017, Palgrave Macmillan will publish the Palgrave Handbook of Relational Sociology (edited by F. Dépelteau) thanks to the collaboration of many competent social scientists coming from various countries. For now, the Handbook is planned to be composed of 50 chapters and its length will be about 1000 pages.

“It is a book that is actually uniting the state of the art of the reflections and authors related to the “relational turn” in the social sciences (that is happening right now). The list of authors is impressive to say the least (there are authors on whom there is also a separate chapter in the very book). The editor Francois Dépelteau has done a remarkable job of getting those people together from all around the world. And I am proud to say that I'm not the only Estonian among the authors of this book anymore: besides me, Tõnis Saarts (also from Tallinn University and from the study area of political science and governance) will co-author a chapter there,” says one of the authors, SOGOLAS associate professor of political methodology (study area of political science and governance) Peeter Selg. 

The two authors from Tallinn University will be contributing the following chapters:

Peeter Selg:
13. Collins and Relational Sociology
36. Power and Relational Sociology

Peeter Selg and Tõnis Saarts:
22. Mann and Relational Sociology
