The Section is committed to enhancing the professional image of sociological practitioners, expanding opportunities for the practical application of sociological principles and techniques, and furthering the production and critique of sociological knowledge by providing a dialogue among sociologists practicing in a wide variety of academic and non-academic settings.
Joining the Section on Sociological Practice and Public Sociology has numerous benefits for a sociologist whose work goes outside the traditional roles of teaching and performing peer-reviewed research. Some of these benefits are:
- Networking for professional opportunities
- Learning with peers
- The book fair at the ASA
- Opportunities to learn an organization’s structure and functioning from the inside
- Visible evidence to the ASA that sociology should seen and heard outside of the classroom
- The Publicizer newsletter
- Good times
So Join ASA or renew/update your membership and be sure to add the Sociological Practice and Public Sociology section to your membership profile!
