Submission decisions are expected the week of March 23.
The 115th ASA Annual Meeting will be held August 8-11, 2020 in San Francisco. The Annual Meeting provides the opportunity for professionals involved in the scientific study of society to share knowledge and new directions in research and practice. Approximately 600 program sessions are convened during the four-day meeting held every August to provide participation venues and networking outlets for nearly 3,000 research papers and over 4,600 presenters.
ASA is carefully monitoring recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and others regarding the COVID-19 situation as we move toward our August Annual Meeting in San Francisco. At present, we are proceeding as planned, but we will adjust as necessary to ensure the health and well-being of our community. Should we need to cancel or amend the meeting plan, we will provide adequate notice to potential participants.
Land Acknowledgement and Recognition
Before we can talk about sociology, power, inequality, we must acknowledge that the land on which we gather is the traditional and unceded territory of the Ramaytush Ohlone (pronounced Rah-my-toosh O-lone-ee). We, the American Sociological Association (ASA), acknowledge that academic institutions, indeed the nation-state itself, was founded upon and continues to enact exclusions and erasures of Indigenous Peoples. This acknowledgement demonstrates a commitment to beginning the process of working to dismantle ongoing legacies of settler colonialism, and to recognize the hundreds of Indigenous Nations who continue to resist, live, and uphold their sacred relations across their lands. We also pay our respect to Indigenous elders past, present, and future and to those who have stewarded this land throughout the generations.
