As we noted on our Facebook page two weeks ago, we are rolling out some big changes to oowsection.org. The site was originally started with two goals – to serve as a homepage for the American Sociological Assocation’s Organizations, Occupations, and Work Section and as a public sociology blog dedicated to the Section’s areas of interest.
As we have grown over the past year, it has become apparent to us that we needed to better delineate between our two goals. To that end, we are spinning off the blog functions to a separate but related site named Work in Progress. If you follow us here because of our blog, please head over to the new site and join us there!
Beginning this week, this site (oowsection.org) will be rededicated towards our first goal – as a home for members of the Organizations, Occupations, and Work Section of the ASA. We will be posting information that may be of interest to our membership, including notes about conferences, calls of papers, jobs, and other announcements. If you are a member of our section, please continue to follow us here as well. If you are not a member, check out our membership page and consider joining!
Over the next few days and weeks, we will continue to make design and content changes to the site. We will also begin posting announcements for our members. Again, if you wish to continue to follow the blog, please visit Work in Progress at workinprogress.oowsection.org. We appreciate your readership and your patience during our transition.
