About the Applied Sociology Cluster

Since then we have grown from zero to over 60 members, organized five sessions at the 2015 CSA conference in Ottawa, started a list-serv, Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/384663875014433/) and LinkedIn group (https://www.linkedin.com/grp/home?gid=8162011).
