American Sociological Association


ASA Annual Meeting

The Annual Meeting of the American Sociological Association provides the opportunity for professionals involved in the scientific study of society to share knowledge and new directions in research and practice. Nearly 600 program sessions are convened in August that provide a scholarly outlet for more than 3,000 research papers and over 4,500 presenters.  

116th ASA Virtual Annual Meeting

Due to COVID-19, the 2021 ASA Annual Meeting in Chicago has been cancelled. It is now clear that the global health crisis will not be resolved by August, and a large gathering of people from around the world presents an untenable health risk. 
We are pleased to offer a virtual 2021 ASA Annual Meeting instead of the in-person event, and we will share further information about the virtual meeting as we work out details in the coming months. We look forward to hosting a robust and exciting virtual meeting based on President Aldon Morris’ theme “Emancipatory Sociology: Rising to the Du Boisian Challenge."
We appreciate your flexibility and wish you and your families well during this difficult period.
