Every day we face new challenges related to COVID-19. ASA wants to help sociologists navigate those challenges. We are offering several resources to help sociologists in their work during this period.
Research from the American Sociological Review finds gender stereotyping of jobs disadvantages both women and men. The article, “The Effects of Gendered Occupational Roles on Men’s and Women’s Workplace Authority: Evidence from Microfinance,“ explores how a managerial role can become gender-stereotyped and the effect that has on the authority of both male and female managers.
The ASA Task Force on Contingent Faculty was appointed to address the changes in faculty employment and working conditions, career prospects for graduate students, and the consequences for higher education that have resulted from the increased reliance on contingent faculty. Contingent faculty, both part-time and full-time non-tenure track, have increased dramatically. By 2011 a majority of faculty were employed part-time. Contingent faculty are least common at Ph.D.
Contributors to the essential anthology Journeys in Sociology use a life-course perspective to address the role of sociology in their lives.

For Mexican migrants skills learned in the United States create new opportunities for business formation and economic mobility

Socius: Sociological Research for a Dynamic World invites papers for a special issue on gender in the 2016 elections. We invite contributions on all topics relevant to gender and politics. Potential topics could include (but are not limited to): gender and the executive; women, social policy, and state legislative elections; intersectionality and the media; gender and public opinion; and women in changing political institutions. Informative papers on trends or cross-national comparisons are welcome as long as they are framed in relation to the 2016 U.S. election.
