The American Sociological Association proudly announces the recipients of the major awards for 2011. These outstanding scholars will be recognized at the 2011 Annual Meeting Awards Ceremony on Sunday, August 21, at 4:30 pm. The Awards Ceremony will immediately precede the formal address of the ASA President Randall Collins. All registrants are invited to attend an Honorary Reception immediately following the address to congratulate President Collins and the award recipients.
The 2011 Annual Meeting theme is "Social Conflict: Multiple Dimensions and Arenas." Chicago, the original site for the meeting, provides a classic urban laboratory where there are numerous opportunities to examine the dimensions of that theme. A long-standing characteristic of Chicago is the hyper-segregation and spatial isolation of African Americans. This ghettoization was decisively bolstered and extended by public policies, making it as prevalent today as it was in the past (Wacquant 2010).
The American Sociological Association is excited to bring the Annual Meeting to Las Vegas for the first time! Not only is Las Vegas vibrant and fascinating from a sociological perspective, but it is also easily accessible for our members around the country. In addition, Caesars Palace affords ASA the unique opportunity to have all components of its meeting—including sessions, receptions, and housing—under one roof for the first time since 1990.
ASA is pleased to announce the participation of the Eastern Sociological Society (ESS) in the Minority Fellowship Program (MFP) Leadership Campaign! The Campaign, led by former ASA Vice President Margaret L. Andersen and ASA Executive Officer Sally T. Hillsman, is now supported by 88 contributing leaders including individuals and organizations.
