The deadline for session proposals for the 2017 SSSI Annual Meeting in Montreal, 8/11-8/13, has been extended to November 18th. PLEASE SUBMIT PROPOSALS NOW!
For forty years, the SSSI has been a professional home for scholars with roots in American pragmatism and the study of identity, everyday practice, and language. Over the decades, what was once a radical alternative to positivism has become accepted by the mainstream. We have endured debates over micro vs. macro, social realism vs. interpretivism, and structure vs. agency. The 2017 annual conference will celebrate the many directions that symbolic interactionist research takes for investigating social issues and envisioning social change.
Call for Sessions and Session Organizers
The conference organizers hope to have a number of sessions that highlight our theme as well as promote related topics at our annual meeting. We invite scholars to submit one-page proposals for paper sessions, plenary session, author meets critic, or other opportunities that will help bring the conference theme to life. Submissions should include a title and a brief description of papers solicited.
Submit session proposals to Beth Montemurro, SSSI Vice-President, at firstname.lastname@example.org . Please put “SSSI Session Proposal” in the subject line. The deadline for session proposals is October 30, 2016. A call for paper submissions will be forthcoming in early 2017.
Information about registration fees, society membership, and banquet tickets will appear on the SSSI website, https://emea01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fsymbolicinteraction.org&data=01%7C01%7Cdirk.vom_lehn%40kcl.ac.uk%7C8631ccf7b1f449eccfc008d404b57841%7C8370cf1416f34c16b83c724071654356%7C0&sdata=tndRJCK5m6BO0BTJZh%2F2yg6zCCr8%2F4E1Rf36zJ47878%3D&reserved=0, as it becomes available.
