Contexts Magazine

Contexts Magazine is a peer-reviewed magazine of the American Sociological Association. It strives to make academic sociological research accessible and relevant for anyone interested in how society works. In 2008, the editorial office of Contexts (at the University of Minnesota) launched contexts.org, which not only features content from the magazine, but is also home to a community of around a dozen blogs authored by sociologists around the country. WordPress MU is behind the entire site.

Why it’s in the Showcase: For an academic audience and publishers, contexts.org is a bold step in taking a traditional publication online and expanding its mission to include blogging. For non-academics, contexts.org is a leading portal to learn about how sociologists approach the world. The site host blogs on media and culture, politics and technology, data and graphic design, and more.
