All About Sections

 

Sections are officially-recognized groups of sociologists who share a common interest in a specific topic. ASA has fifty two sections addressing topics ranging from aging to globalization. Sections are great for networking with your colleagues and keeping up to date with new developments in your field. Sections write newsletters, conduct panels, receptions and sessions at the Annual Meeting, and connect their members on a daily basis through listservs, websites and social media outlets. Some sections even publish scholarly journals. Check out our list of current sections to see if there's a section that matches your interests.

Please follow us on Facebook for the latest news and tips on sections.
