On CCS North: Cultural sociology in Scandinavia has thrived in last years, with many active scholars meeting directly or indirectly through the Center for Cultural Sociology at Yale University. We are now an organic group with face-to-face meetings a few times a year and a weekly seminar on Slack, where we exchange texts and ideas and give each other cultural sociological inspiration. The group includes sociologists as well as researchers from pedagogy, political science, religious studies, and communications backgrounds; we share an interest in a perspective that treats culture as an independent variable and a focus on empirical material from diverse national contexts in comparative perspective. We call ourselves CCS North in reference both to our connection to the CCS at Yale and our northern European base.
