Call for Abstracts: ESS 2017 Sessions of Interest

The following Eastern Sociological Society (ESS) sessions may be of interest to OOW members.

Title: Couple Relationships.
Summary: Both theoretical and empirical research have examined a range of relationship characteristics and processes (including attraction, love, intimacy, commitment, power, communication, and conflict) that may have an impact on the development, quality, and dissolution of intimate relationships. This session is looking for research that examines different aspects of relationship dynamics within couples. Research on non-heterosexual couples and comparative research is encouraged. Please submit abstracts (not longer than 250 words) to Deniz Yucel (yuceld@wpunj.edu). Deadline for abstract submission: October 10, 2016.

Title: Race, Gender, and Inequality in Higher Education.
Summary: Inequality in higher education is more pronounced in certain aspects of educational systems, such as access to higher education, college experiences and post-graduation outcomes. Large disparities continue to exist among racial and ethnic groups in higher education, even for younger generations, and women are surpassing men in postsecondary attainment. This session is looking for research that examines such elements of inequality in higher education. Papers that focus on uncovering issues such as race and gender gaps are encouraged, as is comparative research. Please submit abstracts (not longer than 250 words) to Deniz Yucel (yuceld@wpunj.edu). Deadline for abstract submission: October 10, 2016.
