The American Sociological Association convened its 113th Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, August 11–14. With nearly 5,500 registrants, the 2018 ASA Annual Meeting addressed important current issues within society and the discipline. With sessions ranging from sexuality to criminology and from religion to the family, attendees reported on the most sensitive problems confronting American society.
“I would like to begin by acknowledging that we are holding our meeting in the ancestral and un-ceded territory of the Lenape people. . . “
This is how Eduardo Bonilla-Silva began his 2018 ASA Presidential Address. He went on to underscore that “Sociologists must recognize that settler colonialism…is not past history, but a contemporary social force [and] is a racist project.”
The ASA presented the 2018 awards at this year’s Annual Meeting in Philadelphia on August 12. Congratulations to all our distinguished winners.
ASA has partnered with SAGE since 2010 when Council decided to move away from self-publishing its scholarly journals. As anticipated at the time, the decision to work with a commercial publisher has greatly enhanced our ability over the past nine years to disseminate scholarship broadly, strengthen our journal portfolio, more effectively and efficiently manage journal operations, and generate revenue for mission-driven purposes.
