Preliminary Programme for SSSI Annual Conference 2015 in Chicago #sssi

Dear fellow interactionists,

I am very happy to provide a preliminary schedule for the 2015 SSSI annual conference this August in Chicago, Illinois, on the theme of Symbolic Interaction and Public Sociology. 

Many thanks to the session chairs for their cooperation, and to all of you who submitted paper proposals. Please check over this preliminary program and in the event of any conflicts or mistakes, contact me at apuddeph@lakeheadu.ca, so I can try and accommodate you or fix things before releasing the finalized program as we approach August.

We now have a very simple way to register for the conference and banquet. Please visit https://sites.google.com/site/sssinteraction/home/conferences-events/sssi2015, where you can conveniently register and pay the appropriate banquet registration fees. There is no conference fee for members, though non members are expected to pay $100. We encourage you to become a member if you are not already, as the fees for membership are actually less than $100, and you also receive a subscription to our flagship journal, Symbolic Interaction.

Students are encouraged to look at some funding opportunities as outlined in the preliminary program.

Many thanks for your support, and looking forward to meeting you in Chicago!

Sincerely,

Antony Puddephatt

Vice President, Society for the Study of Symbolic Interaction
