The long-standing patterns of ethnic and racial segregation, migrations, and new economic dynamics uniquely define a variety of historically distinct, well-established, and also emerging features of the social and built landscape of the city.
Human Rights and the Scholarly Society: What Is ASA’s Role?
The American Sociological Association (ASA) announced today that Nancy Weinberg Kidd will succeed the retiring Sally T. Hillsman as the Association's executive officer in September.
Kidd, who earned a Ph.D. in sociology from Stanford University and a B.A. in sociology from the University of Pennsylvania, is currently the executive director of the National Communication Association (NCA) in Washington, D.C.
The American Sociological Association (ASA) has launched Socius: Sociological Research for a Dynamic World, a new open access journal, which published its inaugural articles earlier this month.
A first of its kind for the ASA, the journal is free to anyone, appears online only, and can feature scholarly papers on any sociology-related topic.
