American Sociological Association

Section on History of Sociology


We encourage all American Sociological Association members to join the Section on the History of Sociology(HoS). ASA members can join the section upon renewing their ASA membership through the online membership system. If you are not a member of ASA but are interested in the work of the History of Sociology section, consider joining ASA so you can become a member of the Section. Section dues are payable by check or charge and are only $12 per year, $10 for low-income members, or $5 if you are a student member of ASA. Section membership includes a subscription to the section newsletter, Timelines.

In an effort to increase our membership, and to get the work of HoS out to graduate students and the work of more graduate students into HoS, the Section invites contributions from members to support student membership. (We are not allowed to use our ASA funding for this purpose.) If you know graduate students who would be interested, we continue to encourage you to sponsor memberships for them directly. However, for members who do not know any, this is an opportunity to sponsor graduate students elsewhere who might have a lot to offer, and for whom HoS could be an important opportunity. Questions?
