American Sociological Association: Annual Meeting 2013
President Cecilia Ridgeway and the 2013 Program Committee have been working on an exciting program that will include more than 600 individual sessions on everything from the latest and greatest books in the field, section roundtables, and countless other topics.
MEETING THEME: No set of questions is more fundamental to sociology than those about inequality—what is it, why is it, how does it come about, and what can we do to change it? The theme for the 2013 meetings represents a promising new effort to address these core questions of our discipline. We will focus on to coming to grips with how inequality, in all its multi-dimensional complexity, is produced in contemporary societies. To do so, we will focus in particular on linking micro and macro processes and perspectives on inequality.
-Cecilia L. Ridgeway, ASA President and 2013 Program Committee Chair, Stanford University
