Annual Meeting Open Forum Invites Testimony: Transgender Job Market Experiences Sought

The Committee on the Status of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender (GLBT) Persons in Sociology invites ASA members to provide testimony regarding the challenges faced by transgender sociologists on the job market. The forum will take place August 17 from 4:30-5:30 pm as part of the GLBT Committee meeting, as listed in the meeting schedule . This open forum is prompted by concerns expressed in the 2009 Committee report accepted by council indicating extraordinary difficulties obtaining tenure-track jobs for this group of sociologists. The open forum offers an opportunity for transpersons to network, communicate concerns to the Committee, and discuss strategies to address them. All ASA members who have testimony to provide on this topic are welcome, particularly those individuals who have insight from within hiring committees. Members unable to attend the meeting may provide e-mail testimony to greggor.mattson@oberlin.edu.
