EASTERN SOCIOLOGICAL SOCIETY (ESS)
This paper session, titled “Gender and Work,” invites theoretical and/or empirical research that explores gender gaps in work outcomes and/or gender inequality in the workplace. We are mainly interested in papers exploring the centrality of work to the reproduction of gendered inequalities. Papers that draw on a variety of theoretical perspectives and workplace contexts to explore these themes are especially welcome. Likewise, we welcome papers with policy implications on how to improve the workplace environment from a gender perspective, and its influences on other non-work domains (such as family).
Please send your abstracts (not more than 250 words) to session organizer Deniz Yucel, firstname.lastname@example.org NO LATER THAN OCTOBER 12, 2017.

Are you interested in forming an ASA Section on the Sociology of Reproduction? An increasing number of sociologists are studying reproduction by conducting research on topics such as pregnancy, labor, birth, abortion, contraception, prenatal testing, assisted reproductive technologies, and infertility.
