The Sorokin Lecture is a longstanding opportunity for a distinguished ASA member to deliver a lecture at a regional sociological society meeting. A restricted fund, named for past ASA President Pitirim Sorokin, underwrites the costs for the visiting lecturer.
Any of the winners of major ASA awards in the past two calendar years may be available to deliver a lecture at a state, regional, or aligned sociological association meeting, or on a campus. ASA would cover the costs of travel and up to two days of hotel costs. The host would cover registration and meals. Contingent upon available funding, the ASA can support up to four such lectures each calendar year.
To apply, send a letter of inquiry with specific information about the event and the audience as well as the lecturer preferred. Executive officers or presidents of associations, or faculty (with chair's support) in departments may apply to host a lecturer. Submit these materials and any questions to: Governance and Sections, American Sociological Association, 1430 K St. NW #600, Washington, DC 20005; firstname.lastname@example.org
Preference will be given to groups who have not previously hosted a lecturer. For more information, see the Funding page at www.asanet.org.
