Sessions for 2019 CSA Conference

Greetings, and welcome to the Fall term!  We hope it follows a very good summer for all of you.

Many of you will have noticed that the Call for Sessions for the upcoming CSA conference in June, 2019, at the University of British Columbia has now been posted — and that’s what this message is about.

Following the very successful model of the 2016 and 2017 conferences, we hope once again to be able to offer sessions under our research cluster umbrella, and demonstrate the wonderful diversity of topics that a “critical sociology of families, work and care” can encompass.

So we would now like to invite cluster members to submit proposals for sessions to be offered through the cluster.  All we need is a title, and a short, one-paragraph description. The CSA deadline is Oct. 29, but if you’re interested in the cluster route we ask that you get your proposals to us by Oct. 22, so we can deal with any duplication, and perhaps solicit other proposals if there are obvious gaps. It will be our responsibility to submit the cluster session proposals to the CSA, but once they’re accepted, you will be responsible as session organizers for co-ordinating your individual session from then on.  Please send your proposals to both of us — Glenda Wall at,  and Gillian Ranson at

Best wishes,
Gillian and Glenda
