Sociology of Development Sessions at ASA 2020!

The ASA Virtual Annual Meeting is fast approaching, and SOC DEV will be holding three of our originally planned sessions, so please register and reconnect with us!

The conference will occur online from August 8-11, following the originally scheduled session dates and times. Note that dates/times are based on Pacific daylight time (PDT).

Registration is free to all ASA members and only $25 for non-members.

This is a great opportunity for us to build ties with non-members who conduct development research in other disciplines or who work as practitioners. If you are connected to other development societies, please feel free to disseminate our program to their listservs and encourage your colleagues to attend our exciting line up of sessions.

In order to register for the event or see the broader virtual program, please go to the ASA 2020 Annual Meeting page here:
