Sociologists to Explore Social Conflict at Annual Meeting
in Las Vegas, August 20-23

American Sociological Association Annual Meeting Press Registration Now Open

More than 5,000 sociologists will convene in Las Vegas, Nevada, this August to explore ideas and scientific research relating to sociology and social conflict, as part of the American Sociological Association’s 106th Annual Meeting. While conflict is constantly in the headlines, it’s also under the surface of everyday life. Wherever there is change, struggle, or domination, there is conflict.

The conference will feature nearly 600 sessions and 3,200 studies covering such timely topics as same-sex marriage, the recession, war, religion, immigration, sex, race, bullying, crime, families, politics, relationships, technology, poverty, health and healthcare, education, and many others. Given the diverse range of topics that will be covered, ASA’s Annual Meeting provides a wealth of information for journalists assigned to nearly any beat.
