Announcement from Roundtable Organizers
At the 2012 ASA meetings, section members expressed the desire to bring junior scholars and graduate students into dialogue with more advanced scholars. The 2013 Roundtable Session provides one opportunity for dialogue between generations of scholars at ASA. The Roundtable organizers (Jessica Fields and Anna Sorensen) are recruiting senior scholars to moderate the roundtables, which are conveniently held the hour prior to the Section Business meeting. Last year the Sex and Gender Section hosted 15 roundtables for an hour of provocative discussion, and we anticipate a similar response in 2013.

We encourage scholars at all career stages to propose roundtable papers by the ASA January 9, 2013 submission deadline in anticipation of an intergenerational conversation.
We also encourage senior scholars to serve as discussants at the 2013 roundtables. Please email Jessica Fields ( and Anna Sorensen ( with your contact information and primary areas of research.
