ASA Economic Sociology Section | Annual Meeting


Real Utopias: Emancipatory Projects, Institutional Designs, Possible Futures

Annual Meeting

ASA's annual meeting will be held in Denver from August 17th-20th. The deadline for paper submissions is, as always, inconveniently set for mid January (1/11/2012). Please remind graduate students and interested colleagues with an interest in economic sociology to join the section, as this allows us to host more paper sessions. We look forward to seeing everyone there.
