Sociologists March for Science in DC and Around Nation


  • ASA is partnering with the March for Science, scheduled for April 22, 2017. The March for Science is a public celebration of science and a reminder of the important role evidence-based research plays in informing public policy. The primary march will take place in Washington, DC, beginning with a teach-in and rally on the National Mall. There will also be satellite marches in almost 400 locations around the world. If joining a march, please use the hashtag #March4Sociology and tag the ASA in your social media posts and we will share them. Those coming to or already in DC are invited to join us for breakfast at the ASA office. Please let us know if you are interested via this form and we will provide details by e-mail. We will also be providing signs to print. Get those and other updates on our March for Science page.

Gender, Sexuality, and Intimacy: A Contexts Reader


  • This new anthology, published by SAGE in partnership with ASA, brings together over 90 recent readings on gender, sexuality, and intimate relationships from Contexts, ASA's award-winning magazine. Each contributor is a contemporary sociologist writing in the clear, concise, and jargon-free style that has made Contexts the "public face" of sociology. Jodi O'Brien and Arlene Stein, former Contexts editors, have chosen pieces that are timely, thought-provoking, and especially suitable for classroom use; written introductions that frame each of the book's three main sections; and provided questions for discussion. Order online or call (800) 818-7243 or (805) 499-9774. ASA members receive a 25% discount by using Priority Code N170202.
