THEME: Integrating the Sociology Eclectic: Research, Teaching and Activism
Join us March 27-30, 2013 in Chicago to celebrate and integrate the research, teaching and activism of our wide-ranging and eclectic discipline. These fundamentals of sociology combine into a myriad of demonstrations from service and application work to education and witness roles to community organizing and empowerment actions to advocacy for change.
Curiosity drives all science and motivates our research. Teaching connects the history and the future of all disciplines. Sociology’s complementary dedication to social progress, however, makes it special. Our curiosity is validated by our commitments to solve social problems and work for social justice. Why did we become sociologists? We admit to an unabashed curiosity about the social world. The opportunity to make a difference, however, sealed the deal.
Explore your sociological imagination. Organize a paper session. Share your expertise in a professional workshop. Facilitate a teaching workshop for your favorite course. Nominate gems for our film festival and author-meets-critics sessions. Offer ideas for tours, special events and plenary sessions.
Most importantly, come to Chicago!
