ASA is pleased to introduce the five new scholars who comprise MFP Cohort 46. These talented PhD candidates with strong and diverse sociological research interests were chosen from a highly competitive pool of applicants. The Fellows will officially begin their participation on August 1, 2019.
Anniversaries are special occasions. They are moments for organizations to think about origins, accomplishments, and the future. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS).
The ASA will present the 2019 awards at this year’s Annual Meeting in New York City on August 11. Congratulations to all of our distinguished winners.

The ASA sexual harassment working group (HWG), of which I am a member, was organized nearly two years ago following allegations of sexual harassment, including of women of color, at our annual meetings. We understand that sexual harassment and predatory sexual behavior in academia are not necessarily best treated as the work of a few bad actors, but rather are systemic issues that need to be dealt with as such.
Deadline: June 15 and December 15
The ASA invites submissions for the Fund for the Advancement of the Discipline (FAD) grants. FAD is supported by the National Science Foundation.
