Call for Sociology of Development Panels for ASA 2020

Our President, Jennifer Keahey, is calling for suggestions for panels at ASA 2020 in San Francisco. Please see below for her message and for how to submit suggestions!

I am delighted to announce that the time has come to finalize the themes for our section’s panels at the ASA 2020 Annual Meeting in San Francisco.

As our section day falls on the final day of the conference, we have been awarded an additional program slot. This means we have four panels to plan.

In accordance with section tradition, I have decided that one of our four panels will be an open-topic panel.

In the spirit of our diversity clause, the second panel will focus on perspectives from the global South.

I am calling for suggestions for the third and fourth panels. If you have a topic that you would like to suggest, please email me at by no later than Wednesday, October 9.

Preference will be given to development topics that have been underrepresented in previous ASA section panels or that intersect with the ASA 2020 theme of power, inequality, and resistance at work. I particularly welcome suggestions for underrepresented topics that also have fairly broad appeal.

Kind Regards,
