2005 Centennial ProgramA Sampling of Centennial Program Events for the 2005 ASA Annual Meeting
American Sociological Association Annual Meeting
August 13-16, 2005, Philadelphia, PA
The 2005 Program Committee, chaired by President Duster, created a Subcommittee on the ASA centennial consisting of Caroline Persell as chair, Troy Duster, Patricia Collins, Jill Quadagno, and Sally Hillsman. They have selected more than 20 sessions and videos specific to commemorating ASA’s centennial year. Below is a list of these planned centennial commemorations (as of November 2004):
100 Years of Progress: Presidential Reflections will be presented preceeding the opening plenary session on Friday, August 12, and in ASA's centennial exhibit booth. This documentary is based upon glimpses of sociological thought expressed by the respective presidents of the American Sociological Association from 1906 to the present.
Lester Ward: A Life's Journey will premiere on Saturday, August 13, at 7:30 PM at the Marriott. This documentary chronicles the life and ideas of Ward — his staunch egalitarianism, advocacy for women, fierce resistance to the racism of the eugenics movement, and recognition of the need for public sociology.
