Eastern Sociological Society (ESS) founded the Eastern Sociological Society Opportunities in Retirement Network (ESSORN), in 2009. The network serves to bring together sociologists interested in finding ways to use their sociological knowledge in retirement, especially when they relocate far from the universities where they were employed, and to provide a forum for interaction with colleagues at a similar life stage. We are now thinking about expanding our regional network and perhaps loosely reorganizing on a national basis. We are looking for volunteers in other regions who might be interested in putting together organizational sessions at their regional meetings or meeting with some of us at ASA to discuss common interests. If you think you might like to get involved in this project, Contact: Rosalyn Darling at email@example.com; or Peter Stein at firstname.lastname@example.org.Back to Top of Page
