How should we be passing along Symbolic Interactionism to the next generation of scholars? How can Symbolic Interactionist research on teaching and learning inform our practice?

The Society for the Study of Symbolic Interaction is an international community of scholars whose scholarship employs and examines the perspective of Symbolic Interactionism. The Society publishes a quarterly journal, Symbolic Interaction, which was founded in 1977.

The Couch-­‐Stone Symposium is one of two annual meetings of SSSI (the other being held simultaneously with ASA). It was named for two interactionist sociologists who were instrumental   in   founding   SSSI,   both   scholars   at   Midwestern   universities:   Carl   Couch (University of Iowa) and Gregory Stone (University of Minnesota).
