"Marching over its stumbling blocks,  nothing will stop the steady growth of    sociology" 
 -- Lester Ward 

2021 PSS Conference​

November 5-6, 2021

Location: Virtual (Zoom)

Call for Papers

The major objective of the PSS is to provide a forum for communication for sociologists working in diverse settings: education, industry, government, voluntary associations, or solo practitioners; and to increase understanding of the interplay of sociological knowledge and social research. An adjunct objective is to assist future sociologists in developing their careers.

    Membership in the PSS is open to anyone who has expressed or demonstrated an interest in the field of sociology. There are no restrictions on race, sex, age, creed, or national origin. Active members are those who paid dues for the current year.

    The PSS sponsors a professional journal (Sociological Viewpoints), a two-day annual fall meeting, a newsletter, and numerous award competitions.

    Come in, look around, and see what we're all about.
