The CSA-SCS Student Concerns Subcommittee is currently planning workshops addressing the needs and interests of students.
This panel is intended to open a discussion with student members of the Canadian Sociological Association about the contemporary moment in Sociology. While we are encouraged to not “commit sociology”, and as the tenured professor dream becomes less attainable, graduate are wondering about the future of sociology in Canada, as well as their future in sociology. We invite presenters to talk about the job prospects in Sociology, the direction of Canadian sociology, the changing nature of employment at the university, and other related themes to the contemporary moment in Sociology. Potential questions to explore include: what is the future of Canadian sociology? What does public sociology look like in Canada? How is Canadian sociology growing differently than American or other sociologies?
Panelists: To be finalized
