Professor Emeritus Norbert Wiley recently had a paper published in The American Sociologist.
The paper discusses the initial push in 1976 from Professor Wiley and his colleague, Norm Denzin, to "broaden and democratize" the scope of what was published in the American Sociological Review. Professor Wiley attended a Council meeting of the ASR and confronted then-secretary Bill Form, who did not want to hear the position. This paper describes the fight at the meeting between Bill Form and Wiley, along with comments from the Council members. Find the full text here.
