From Cristina Morales: 

I am the organizer of the Southwestern Social Science Association’s (SSSA) Silent Auction to benefit ASA’s Minority Fellowship Program (MFP).  We are encouraging members of ASA to continue supporting the development and training of sociologists by donating auction materials.  Each year, SSSA conference attendees are introduced to academic books through the silent auction that they are then able to consider for course adoption, use to inform their research, and engage with in preparation for courses.

I urge you to donate your book(s) or to contact your publishers and request that they donate to SSSA’s Silent Auction.  100% of the proceeds from the Silent Auction go directly to ASA’s MFP.

 Please mail your books or any items that you think may be of interest to academics by March 31st, 2017 to: Maria Cristina Morales, Ph.D., Department of Sociology and Anthropology, The University of Texas at El Paso, 500 W. University Dr., El Paso, TX 79968.

We’re pleased to announce the release of an ILR Review special issue on workplace inequality — offering important theoretical and practical insights for efforts to reduce inequality in organizations. Many thanks to guest editors Pamela S. Tolbert and Emilio J. Castilla.  Papers in the issue empirically examine the efficacy of a range of practices to reduce racial and gender disparities in hiring, promotion, and compensation.  They also identify key contingencies that affect the relationship between organizational practices and outcomes, showing differences in effects for women and minorities, for members at different hierarchical levels, and for members drawn from internal or external labor markets.
