Latest Message from the CSA President
Welcome to the Canadian Sociological Association!
CSA President 2013-2014
Dr. Patrizia Albanese
I hope that your start-of-term is going well. As always, it will be done before we know it! Until then let me share some recent developments with you.
Welcome Tina and Gary
I'd like to welcome and introduce you to two new members of the CSA executive:
- Tina Fetner, McMaster University, new Communications Officer (2013-2016)
- Gary Barron, University of Alberta, new Webmaster (2013-2016)
Thanks to Tina and Gary for taking on the positions. With them on board, we will be able to expand our outreach with you and others. We encourage you to contact them with your communication and web ideas.
We have received a number of enthusiastic emails over the summer from CSA members interested in developing new research clusters. The CSA is moving forward on this and aims to facilitate their organic, membership-driven development. To do this, we will have a regular call for sessions (see below). On that form, session organizers will be asked if they are interested in having their proposed session join a cluster. The CSA will facilitate the establishment of clusters and help coordinate further meetings at Congress at Brock University in May 2014, aimed at supporting their development. We have created some guidelines to help you get the ball rolling.
Call for Sessions: Conference at Brock University 2014
Following in the footsteps of a very successful Congress in Victoria, with the help of our colleagues at Brock University, we have begun planning for what we hope will be one of our best annual Conference ever. But of course, only YOU can make that happen. We encourage you to submit a session proposal now. Soon after that, we will post our call for papers. Together, we can make the Congress 2014 program diverse and intellectually rigorous.
Call for Papers: ISA World Congress 2014
We know that a relatively large number of CSA members plan to attend the 2014 ISA World Congress in Japan. Having a large Canadian contingent in Japan will send a positive message to our colleagues around the world and no doubt entice them to consider joining us in 2018, when we host the ISA World Congress. We encourage you to consider attending and passing the word on to others. The deadline for abstracts is September 30, 2013: http://www.isa-sociology.org/congress2014/facing-inequality.htm
Best wishes on your fall term.
Regards - Patrizia
