How to Join the Section

Membership in the section includes:

  • access to the section’s email lists;
  • the opportunity to submit your work for consideration of the section sessions;
  • and a chance to meet fellow scholars with similar interests in teaching and research.

Membership in the ASA is required for section membership and also comes with a variety of additional benefits, such as access to publications, such as the ASA newsletter Footnotes (online current and previous issues), and opportunities to engage with fellow sociologists from other sections. Please consult the ASA homepage for ASA Membership Information.
