Activities for the 2020 ASA Annual Meeting

ASARN will hold several sessions at the 2020 ASA Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, August 8-11, 2020. 

Howard S. Becker will be presenting the 2020 Life in Sociology lecture, followed by a reception in his honor. Becker is a sociologist known as much for his dry wit as for his groundbreaking work examining deviancy, art and music.

A paper session organized by Jeffrey E. Nash and Marcia Texler Segal on "After Retirement." Papers are invited on any retirement-related topic including, but not limited to, planning retirement, engaging in new activities, ways to continue career-based activities, lifestyle decisions and options, down-sizing and relocating or issues related to aging. Both retirees and those not yet retired are welcome to submit papers based on research or personal experience. The submission deadline is January 29, 2020. Submission details.

A Professional Development Workshop to be organized by Roberta Spalter-Roth and Marcia Texler Segal.

Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
