Dear SSSI Colleagues:
If you have not yet had a chance to look at the preliminary program for the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Society for the Study of Symbolic Interaction, I encourage you to do so. You can see it here:
We have a dynamic program, including 37 paper sessions, an Author-Meets-Critics session focused on Dr. Elizabeth Hordge-Freeman’s book, The Color of Love Racial Features, Stigma, and Socialization in Black Brazilian Families, (University of Texas Press, 2015), and the Distinguished lecture “The Past, Present and Future of G. H. Mead in Symbolic Interactionism,” given by Dr. Jean-François Côté, Université du Québec à Montréal. We also will have a workshop: “Using Grounded Theory for Social Justice Research,” given by: Dr. Kathy Charmaz, Sonoma State University, and featuring special presentations: “Grounded Theory Coding.” Dr. Linda Liska Belgrave, University of Miami “Pragmatist and Interactionist Perspectives on Social Justice.” Dr. Melinda Milligan, Sonoma State University.
The workshop is free for registered meeting participants, but you must sign up in advance.
There will also be a welcome reception on Friday evening. Our banquet and awards ceremony will be Saturday evening, following the distinguished lecture presentation.
