Call for Applications: CASBS Summer Institute on Organizations and their Effectiveness

Since 2016, the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford has run a two-week summer “boot camp” for young faculty in sociology, economics, law, management, and political science with the aim of getting organizations researchers out of their disciplinary and methodological silos. During the pandemic, we have met online, but we are now preparing for an in-person workshop for July 2023. The institute brings together young faculty and postdoctoral fellows from across the world to learn from notable faculty and each other, through lectures, hacks, discussion, and walks. Led by Bob Gibbons (MIT Sloan and Economics) and Woody Powell (Stanford Education and Sociology, currently director of CASBS), they are joined by “guest chefs” from many disciplines. Recent visitors to the workshop have included Kate Kellogg, Dan Carpenter, Hahrie Han, Jenna Bednar, Scott Page, Adam Reich, Marianne Bertrand, Rebecca Henderson, and Jerry Davis. Participants describe the experience as transformational, and an exceptional way to build an inter-disciplinary organizations committee.

We are now taking applications for Summer 2023. For more information about applying, please go to:

Call for Submissions: The 2023 Annual Junior Theorists Symposium! 

​SUBMISSION DEADLINE: March 1st, 11:59pm Eastern Time

The 17th Junior Theorists Symposium (JTS) is now open to new submissions. The JTS is a conference featuring the work of emerging sociologists engaged in theoretical work, broadly defined. Sponsored in part by the Theory Section of the ASA, the conference has provided a platform for the work of early-career sociologists since 2005. We especially welcome submissions that broaden the practice of theory beyond its traditional themes, topics, and disciplinary function.

The symposium will be held as an in-person event on Thursday, August 17 prior to the 2023 ASA Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, PA.  

It is our honor to announce that Claire Decoteau (University of Illinois-Chicago), Greta Krippner (University of Michigan), and Victor Ray (University of Iowa) will serve as discussants for this year’s symposium. Daniel Hirschman (Cornell University), winner of the 2022 Junior Theorist Award, will deliver a keynote address. Finally, the symposium will include an after-panel titled “Why Theorize?” This panel will seek to bring scholars, thinkers, and doers into conversation to explore convergences, tensions, and a range of possible responses to the question: why theorize?

We invite all ABD graduate students, recent PhDs, postdocs, and assistant professors who received their PhDs from 2019 onwards to submit up to a three-page précis (800-1000 words). The précis should include the key theoretical contribution of the paper and a general outline of the argument.

Successful précis from last year’s symposium can be viewed here.

Please note that the précis must be for a paper that is not under review or forthcoming at a journal.

As in previous years, there is no pre-specified theme for the conference. Papers will be grouped into sessions based on emergent themes and discussants’ areas of interest and expertise. We invite submissions from all substantive areas of sociology, we especially encourage papers that are works-in-progress and would benefit from the discussions at JTS.

Please remove all identifying information from your précis and submit it via the Google form below. Wendy Li (University of Wisconsin-Madison) and Jon Shaffer (Johns Hopkins University) will review the anonymized submissions. You can also contact them at with any questions. By early April, we will extend 9 invitations to present at JTS 2023. Please plan to share a full paper by July 7, 2023. 

*Presenters should plan to attend in-person, though this may change based on the Covid-19 pandemic.

If you have any issues uploading your document, please send a copy of your précis with all identifying information removed to Please include your name and affiliation (University and Department) in the body of the email.

Call for Proposals: NSF Funding Opportunities

Message from Joseph Whitmeyer, Program Director at NSF:

Dear ASA Section Chair:

I am contacting you to ask you to distribute this information concerning two new NSF funding opportunities to your section members, who may be interested in one or both of them.  They both appeared within the past week and both have relatively close deadlines.  The Build and Broaden Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) has a deadline of May 1, and the General Social Survey competition has a Letter of Intent due June 1.

Briefly, the Build and Broaden DCL ( is to support conferences to foster collaborations among institutions that include at least one Minority-Serving Institution.

The General Social Survey has been substantially supported by the NSF since its inception.  The last recompetition was in 2008 and a lot has changed since then, which should enable some strong, innovative proposals this time.  This solicitation ( concerns two cycles of the survey, in 2022 and 2024.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.  Thank you in advance for this assistance!

Call for Proposals: Navigating the New Arctic (NSF)

Message from John Parker, Program Director at NSF:

“The National Science Foundation has recently announced the Navigating the New Arctic funding program. The goal of the program is to fund scholars from all fields to research and understand the profound social, environmental, and engineering challenges and opportunities related to the creation of an open and ice-free arctic.

Sociologists are particularly well suited to think about these issues, and it would be fantastic to have some sociologically oriented investigations into one of the most profound socio-environmental changes in human history.

The solicitation includes email addresses for cognizant program officers in case you would like to ask about the suitability of your research for this solicitation.”
