Personal Statement:

The social scientific knowledge we generate as sociologists can create better, more equitable organizations and societies. Throughout my career, I have produced research with the goal of transforming workplaces, including in academic, nonprofit, and corporate settings. Too often, important research findings stay in the academy and are not translated into policy. As a professional association, the ASA has the important role of publicizing and amplifying sociological research for the betterment of society. My long-standing commitment to fostering this goal is evident in my teaching, research, mentoring, and program building, for which I received the SWS feminist mentoring and lecturer awards. As director of the Clayman Institute for Gender Research for the past nine years, I have worked to build and support a diverse community of scholars, activists, and policy makers committed to putting rigorous research into action to create more diverse and inclusive organizations. If elected president, I will devote my efforts to these goals, working with our membership and the ASA staff to amplify the social impact of our collective research.

Personal Statement:

Sociological scholarship reveals that systems of domination-patriarchy, race, class, and sexual orientation-intersect and mutually reinforce. In these troubling times, a sociology of liberation rooted in empirical observation and theorizing from data rather than ideology is overdue. This sociology is realizable through systematic study and rigorous reasoning in the scholarly tradition pioneered by W. E. B. Du Bois. As ASA president, I would promote using existing methodologies and formulating new ones that facilitate the collection and analysis of critical evidence leading to new theoretical perspectives on the social conditions faced by oppressed groups. I will organize the conference to push the limits of knowledge to point us toward relief from gender discrimination and sexual harassment, racism, ableism, heteronormativity, and devastating class inequalities. In so doing, we can make sociology relevant to positive social transformation thus reclaiming its radical roots anchored in research. While sociology’s strength derives from heterogeneous theories and methodologies, our intellectual habitus need interrogation to generate new insights into an increasingly complex world.

Personal Statement:

Our professional community is a critical resource for developing and refining sociological insights, expanding our collective impact, and enriching our individual careers. Building on my extensive track-record and commitment to service and outreach, I would promote our field externally to increase support for research and teaching, drive public recognition of sociological contributions, and amplify the impact of sociology on society. Sections anchor the organizational experience of most ASA members and sections are critical to achieving meaningful inclusivity and deeper senses of belonging. My prior experiences in section leadership and the Committee on Sections have helped me identify important financial, data, and governance supports that would improve the health, vitality, and inclusivity of sections. Expanding services to build members’ work and careers is also a high priority, including forward-looking consideration of issues facing early-career members including high student loan debts and mentoring needs. This nomination is a true honor, thank you.

Personal Statement:

I am deeply grateful for this nomination and hope to use this as an opportunity to promote greater diversity in higher education, encourage public sociology, and foster the works of new scholars. My long-term support for these goals is reflected in my research and service. I am a scholar of labor, gender, the family, and international migration, who in recent years has used qualitative methods to examine the lives of groups identified as human trafficking victims by the U.S. Department of State. My greatest satisfaction from our profession has come from my mentorship of students and from doing public sociology, which I have done for example by helping international groups such as Human Rights Watch gain access to the hard to reach population of domestic workers in the Middle East. I am honored to have received the 2019 Jessie Bernard Award. If elected, I would work on advancing the public engagement of sociologists so we can collectively have a broader impact in the public sphere.

Personal Statement:

As a grad student, I was overwhelmed and intimidated by the ASA annual meeting, and it took a long time for me to figure out how to build intellectual community by getting involved in sections. After serving as an elected council member in the Science, Knowledge, and Technology section for three years, and working on mentoring and award committees for SKAT, SREM, and the Medical Sociology sections for over five years, my understanding and appreciation for the association has deepened tremendously. In seeking a position as Council Member-at-Large, my aim is two-fold: (1) to amplify the insights of contingent faculty and graduate students whose experiences shine a light on the relationship between academic labor, knowledge production, and inequity in our own backyards; (2) to extend the impact and influence of sociology beyond academia, especially K-12 education and the tech world, both of which I have been actively engaging as an informal ambassador of our field for the last three years. As a council member, I would aim to become more effective in this public engagement work as I draw on the knowledge and networks of my colleagues.

Personal Statement:

I am committed to: 1) expanding knowledge of and opportunities for sociologists to practice outside the discipline and 2) increasing the recognition of and support for the professional growth and development public and applied sociologists within the American Sociological Association. This includes helping foster opportunities for sociologists to learn how to communicate their and their students’ skill sets and expertise to potential employers and clients across a range of settings. These opportunities can increase the impact of sociology on policy and practice and support the discipline as a whole in increasing diversity and inclusion within sociology. I am also interested in improving communication among sociologists inside and outside of the sociology departments and outside of Academia, such that findings from applied work can increasingly inform sociological theory and practice inside Academia as well as vice versa.

Personal Statement:

I am an urban sociologist and Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Pittsburgh. My desire to serve as a member at large stems from a yearning passion for contributing my knowledge and skills as a member of the American Sociological Association since 1996. I have served on a number of academic committees as well as leadership roles on numerous boards and educational organizations within and outside the discipline, including proudly serving as Director of Urban Studies at the University of Pittsburgh. These experiences have taught me valuable communication and critical thinking skills. The professional relationships I developed throughout the discipline and at various academic institutions has enabled me to represent and understand a host of viewpoints. The common thread tying these endeavors together is the hunger for an expanded perspective of the discipline and a deeper understanding of how I can contribute to it as an officer within ASA.

Personal Statement:

As a scholar of higher education, I have an inherent interest in how academic organizations are run.

I have held many relevant positions at the departmental and university levels, as well as served in several capacities within the American Sociological Association—preparing me to succeed in this position. As an ASA Council Member-at-Large, I will be focused on shaping policies to reflect the interests of sociologists from a wide array of postsecondary organizations. I will also be attuned to equity issues surrounding race, gender, social class, sexuality, and citizenship status.

Personal Statement:

The summer after I graduated with a BA in Sociology, I stumbled into the national ASA offices and the staff sociologists (including then-ED Bill D’Antonio) took me under their wing and hired me as a part time RA. Even after landing a full-time job, I was lucky enough to continue to work part-time at ASA until I started graduate school. From that introduction to ASA, and continuing throughout my career, including my recently-completed term as Department Head, I have benefited from, and been amazed by, the multi-faceted ways the ASA supports and promotes sociology. I would be honored to give back to the organization by serving as a Council Member. In the last several years, I have become increasingly involved in working to bring sociological research to public audiences, and would be particularly interested in helping ASA leadership continue to develop and expand their supports for sociologists in those efforts.

Personal Statement:

Serving on Council would allow me to extend my service to the discipline while also practicing the inclusive leadership skills I have developed in my professional career. I have served several different ASA sections, both large and small, and through that service have come to appreciate the vast range of backgrounds, interests, and perspectives represented among our members. Through the university administrative positions I have held, I have learned the value of open and transparent decision-making processes, communal goal-setting, and broad consultation. I welcome the opportunity to apply these values and skills toward building and supporting a welcoming and inclusive professional community.

Personal Statement:

I am tremendously honored to be considered for ASA Council, especially given its oversight functions and aims to insure that all voices within our discipline are represented. It would be my hope, should I be elected to this position, that the ASA continue to find ways to strengthen and amplify the field’s core intellectual mission and visibility. It is also important to me personally that, in doing so, ASA and its Council not lose sight of and work tremendously hard to safeguard and strengthen inclusivity, integration and support for certain facets of our membership, often easily overlooked (e.g., international, community college, and adjunct/lecturer colleagues), including especially those from disadvantaged and underrepresented backgrounds.

Personal Statement:

I’m seeking office as a way to provide service to the discipline. I’ve benefited a great deal from ASAs organizational structure (i.e., the national meetings, the journals, the network resources) and so I look forward to the opportunity to give back. The committee on committees makes recommendations to Council for other committee appointments and I believe this represents an opportunity to incorporate a wide range of voices into ASA's organizational structure. As a way of investing in ASA's long-term future, I’m especially interested in supporting early and mid-career individuals for committee appointments. I hope that I can provide value by listening carefully to others, working as a team member, and humbly offering my input. ASA has given much to me over the last 30 years and so I hope I can provide something in return.

Personal Statement

Born in Harlem, and raised in the South Bronx I have been a sociologist (sans the credential) since childhood. Growing up and experiencing first-hand deepening inequality in New York City during the 1970s and 1980s left a deep imprint and shaped my subsequent intellectual pursuits. The sociological study of race, ethnicity, and inequality is at the heart of my program of research. My scholarly interests span intergroup prejudice and discrimination, comparative race and ethnic relations, American youth and public opinion, and survey research methods. As a passionate advocate for promoting greater access, equity, and inclusion in the field of sociology and throughout academia, I am delighted to be under consideration to serve on the ASA’s Committee on Committees (COC). The COC is responsible for making recommendations to the ASA Council for appointments to various standing and award selection committees. Thus, service on the COC appeals to me because it provides an opportunity to further promote the diverse voices and perspectives in sociology. My approach to service on the COC will be collaborative; working with various stakeholders to make ASA a place where all individuals feel welcome and their perspectives can be openly expressed.

These roles have offered the chance to recruit and work with fellow section members to carry out the section's activities. I look forward to the opportunity to provide service to the broader ASA community as a member-at-large for the Committee on Committees.

Personal Statement:

As a teacher-scholar and public sociologist, my professional career has been dedicated to integrating scholarship, teaching and service in meaningful ways. My primary research agenda establishes immigration status as a form of stratification. Drawing on qualitative and longitudinal data with 1.5-generation (immigrants born abroad but raised in the United States) Brazilian immigrants in Massachusetts, my work challenges legal/illegal binaries and underscores how (il)legality is socially and legally constructed. Moreover, it examines how multiple categories of legal membership stratify opportunities, perpetuate inequality and shape sense of belonging. Throughout my professional career, I have created courses that allow students to take ownership over their own learning through original research and critical engagement in their local and global communities. I have served as an immigration liaison for undocumented students and students in mixed-status families at predominantly white institutions and helped students to organize, founding immigrants rights’ coalitions in their own communities.

Personal Statement:

As Sociologists, we continually strive for diversity in representation at all levels--whether it is in our classrooms, departments, or committees and sections of ASA. As a tenured Latinx faculty member, I would represent an important segment of ASA that has not historically been well represented on key committees such as committee on committees. I plan to ensure the committee continues to bring a strong slate of candidates from all institutional types, and diverse constituent groups.

Personal Statement:

It is an honor to be nominated for this position in the ASA. I have been a community college teacher for 18 years and feel that I am well seasoned in being aware of the academic and personal needs of the community college student. I have experience working first hand with first generation college students and inspiring and accommodating their diverse interests and needs as they bridge to a four year degree and a future career that many did not think was possible. Although I have published and researched, I am always looking for avenues to include students in research projects, community engagement, and career paths. The greatest reward in my career has been helping students to realize their own potential and motivate them to become lifelong learners and advocates for themselves as they construct their own destiny in society. I would welcome the opportunity to contribute to the ASA community by sharing my experiences as a voice for the community college student.

Personal Statement:

I have spent the last few years researching and understanding sociology at the community college level. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to serve as co-chair of the American Sociological Task Force on Community Colleges. I think my experiences will enable me to represent our members from community colleges well. I would like the opportunity to serve my colleagues and help the ASA develop new ways to continue to support members from two year institutions.

Personal Statement:

A former NSF program officer recently suggested to me that "the purpose of all knowledge is action; and at least one purpose of action is friendship." I care about the climate of our community of scholars in the ASA. I currently serve on the ASA Membership Taskforce, and we have been conducting survey research and focus groups to better understand how ASA can improve and enhance services to our members. One finding is that our section memberships are very instrumental in retaining members. I'm interested in serving the ASA to help develop new friendships around the common ground we share, and contribute a voice to making our organization increasingly inclusive and a place where members are welcomed and feel like they belong.

Personal Statement:

The ASA's officers and key committees provide leadership that charts the association's course, offering a professional platform to orient our discipline to a wide range of constituencies and audiences. As such, it is crucial that nominations for those positions represent the diversity of our membership and bring those viewpoints to bear upon core ASA tasks in a manner that complements and extends the vibrant work reflected in ASA sections and beyond. Building on my prior experience with a number of these committees at both the section and association levels, I would be honored to further those priorities by serving on the Committee on Nominations.

Personal Statement:

I appreciate the nomination for ASA Committee on Nominations, and I will invest my time and energy into this. In considering nominations for the ASA, I am motivated to advance the diversity and academic excellence of the Association. We should take seriously members who do not feel the ASA and its publications work well for them, whether based on academic interest/perspective, gender, race, sexuality, class, institutional status, or the like. Those nominated should come from an array of institutions and backgrounds and be committed to increasing the types of voices that shape our scholarly discourse. As a former chair and someone who has been at R1 and teaching institutions, I also understand the different expectations on faculty. The affordability of the ASA is another issue for our elected leaders. Finally, we should continue to recognize the work sociologists do outside of the university, which I appreciate from my own experiences.

Personal Statement:

Having worked at both a large research university and small liberal arts college, and with a longstanding commitment to interdisciplinary research, I am seeking election to the Committee on Nominations to ensure that broad and diverse intellectual and professional interests are well represented in key ASA committee and leadership positions. With extensive experience in the private sector (mostly strategy consulting), I also believe that the discipline of sociology needs to sharpen its message to audiences well beyond its immediate constituents. If elected, I would therefore strive to identify candidates for key ASA positions that can help sociology maximize its impact on the broader world.

Personal Statement:

I am honored to have been nominated to the Committee on Nominations where I may have influence over getting the best, most diverse candidates into the senior offices of the Sociological Association. My work has been to support social justice studies wherever and whenever I can, especially with underserved and often invisible Indigenous peoples, and for axes of stratification over groups that experience oppression and discrimination. Moreover, we have a responsibility toward the planet, as global climate change arising from industrial capitalism, threatens the species ourselves, as well as all Life on our mother Earth. Political regimes must change toward models like the Green New Deal and welfare for all, but in a peaceful way that does not threaten hard-won gains that better our environment and societies. Let us pick our leaders with this in mind and heart.

Personal Statement:

Personal Statement:

So this is the committee tasked with nominating people to all the other ASA-wide positions. I think a lot of how ASA is organized is somewhere between mysterious and totally silly, but I figure I shouldn't only complain about it on Twitter, I should probably actually get involved and see how it works, whether I might be wrong, and what I can do to make it work better. And I absolutely think who our President and other officers are matters, and I'm happy to help figure out people to nominate for those positions. In terms of what I think my politics around nominating would be, I think it's a good idea to have people from all the various parts of sociology, as long as they're good scholars and responsible people. Happy to answer questions over twitter (@daniel_laurison) or email.

Personal Statement:

I’ve been a member of ASA for almost forty years and a regular attendee at our annual meetings, but as is clear from my answers above, I have not been very active in ASA governance. My governance/service energy has been locally directed, primarily on my campus and in my community. In this respect, I am likely similar to any number of ASA members whose careers have been more locally focused, and I would be pleased to represent this perspective through service on the nominations committee. My focus would be on continuing and expanding efforts to recruit the broadest possible cross-section of ASA members to serve the association on elected and appointed committees.

Personal Statement:

The Committee on Nominations, with its selection role, plays a key role in identifying candidates for ASA leadership, Council and several committees. Sociology is a broad discipline, spanning a multitude of substantive topics, a wide variety of methodological approaches, departments with different missions, and importantly a diverse membership. If elected, I will try to be mindful of this diversity and seek to forward candidates who can represent constituencies from the various corners of sociology.

Personal Statement:

I am very honored to be considered for the Nominations Committee. I’ve been involved in ASA in a number of capacities and consider it a privilege to serve the organization. What would be important to me as a member of the Nominations Committee is to try to reach out beyond personal networks in the nominations process to get more people involved in ASA roles, and to have a diverse slate of candidates as well as candidates from different types of institutions. In addition to my experience in various ASA positions, what I would bring to the role is a high level of efficiency, organization, and commitment to doing the work that needs to be done to fulfill the committee's function in ASA.

I would be happy to do my part to help support and improve the publications of the ASA.

Personal Statement:

The ASA publishes many of the top journals in our field. Our association should also be at the forefront of the social sciences in developing and supporting best practices for sharing our research findings. The Committee on Publications should be developing clear plans to shift our scholarship model towards open access; institutionalizing incentives for code and data sharing, where appropriate; and expanding efforts to publish non-traditional forms of research scholarship.

Personal Statement:

As current co-editor of Social Problems, former editor of Sociological Focus, editorial board member of Gender & Society, and managing editor of Sociological Forum, I have gained lots of insights into the world of publishing. Those insights situate me well for the Committee on Publications. I care especially about ensuring that our journals are diverse and inclusive in all respects (regarding people, institutions, and research foci and methodology). Editors of ASA journals are no longer exclusively drawn from elite institutions, which is good, but we can do more to make such opportunities available to a broader range of sociologists. Moreover, with the publishing business in a state of flux, we need to be alert to the potential equity and professional consequences of changes in industry policies and organizational practices (e.g., cost of open access publishing; open review process; potential conflicts between attention and quality measures).

Personal Statement:

As an author who relies on both qualitative and quantitative methods, it often feels like an impossible task to get an article published. Yet, having previously served as an ASA editor for Journal of Health & Social Behavior, I also appreciate the challenges faced by editors. The quality and content of ASA journals has a tremendous impact in shaping the status, impact, and future of the field of sociology. The choice of editors, representation of methods and theoretical perspectives, and attention to professional ethics are all extremely important to this process. If elected to serve on the publications committee, I will bring the perspective of author and editor to the publications committee table and work hard to represent the best interests of prospective authors across a broad range of methods and interests.
