Description

The Annual Meeting of the American Sociological Association provides the opportunity for professionals involved in the scientific study of society to share knowledge and new directions in research and practice. Nearly 600 program sessions are convened during the four-day meeting held every August to provide participation venues and networking outlets for nearly 3,000 research papers and over 4,600 presenters.

President Paula England and the 2015 Program Committee have been working on an exciting program that will include nearly 600 individual sessions on everything from the latest and greatest books in the field, section roundtables, and countless other topics.

Meeting Theme: Sexualities in the Social World

Sex usually occurs in private and is seen as deeply personal, yet it is also profoundly social. Cultural norms and social institutions such as religion, education, mass media, law, and the military all affect what we do sexually with whom. These social forces also affect what is seen as beyond the bounds of legitimacy.  Indeed, contemporary politics are full of contentious debates about abortion, sex education, same-sex marriage, pornography, sex work, sexual harassment, systematic rape as a weapon in wars, and female genital cutting. Given the importance of sexuality in people's lives, and its relevance to many areas of sociology, ASA President Paula England has selected it as the theme for the 2015 Annual Meeting of the ASA.
