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. Further, the sociological study of reproduction is a critical place of feminist research. Here are a few reasons why an ASA Section on the Sociology of Reproduction is a good idea:
From now and until January 31, 2017, ASA is accepting nominations for its nine major awards. Each August the American Sociological Association proudly presents awards to individuals and groups deserving of recognition. ASA members are encouraged to submit nominations for the following ASA awards. The deadline for nominations is provided with each award criteria. Each award selection committee is appointed by Committee on Committees and approved by ASA Council. The award selection committees are constituted to review nominations. These awards are presented at the ASA Annual Meeting each August. Remember! The deadline for submission of nominations is January 31, 2017. Currently, the ASA presents the following awards:
- Distinguished Book ASA Major Award
- Dissertation ASA Major Award
- Excellence in the Reporting of Social Issues ASA Major Award
- Jessie Bernard ASA Major Award
- Cox-Johnson-Frazier ASA Major Award
- Award for the Public Understanding of Sociology ASA Major Award
- Distinguished Career ASA Major Award for the Practice of Sociology
- Distinguished Contributions to Teaching ASA Major Award
- W.E.B. DuBois Career of Distinguished Scholarship Award
Any questions or concerns should be sent to Governance at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope you will help us find those special sociologists who disserve this kind of recognition.
ASA needs your help!
ASA is conducting usability testing as part of the effort to redesign its website. We are recruiting sociologists: teaching or research faculty, practitioners and graduate/undergraduate students, for one on one testing sessions with our User Experience (UX) consultant.
