If you would like to join us, you have three options:
- You can become a regular member. This means that you become a member of the International Sociological Association (ISA) as well as a member of RC47. In the process of joining the ISA, you will be asked which Research Committees you want to join. Make sure to select RC47 (“Social Classes and Social Movements”). If you already are a member of the ISA and want to join RC47, you can do so using the membership form in the member-area of the ISA website (login required).
In addition to the ISA membership fee, membership in RC47 costs 10 USD per year (if you live in a high or upper middle income country) or 5 USD per year (if you live in a low or lower middle income country or if you are a student).
- You can become an affiliated member. This means that you only become a member of RC47 without being a member of the ISA. The membership fees for affiliated members are the same as those for regular members (except the ISA fees, of course). See the section on Membership in our statutes to learn more about the different rights of the two types of membership.
- If you don’t want to become a formal member just yet, you can get in touch with any member of the RC47 board to learn more about ways of participating informally.
We strongly encourage regular membership and urge all RC47 members to also join the ISA.
