Call for Submission

2009 Annual Film Screenings

movieThe ASA Annual Meeting Program Committee is again setting aside space in which new films/videos may be screened during the Annual Meeting. Members and others who wish to propose a film for inclusion in the 2009 screening series may submit a copy of the film/video and a brief description of the work that notes its relevance to sociological instruction and research. Films that can be fit into a 50- or 80-minute course block are of particular interest.

Films will be judged on time sensitivity, relevance to the field of sociology, and potential use in teaching. Those who submit films will be notified of screening decisions in late spring and your copy of the film will be returned after the annual meeting.

Please send film/video nominations (preferably in DVD format) by
