CSA 2021
Annual meeting
 
Location: Online via Zoom
 
Date: Nov 12-13, 2021
 
Theme:: Challenging Multiple Pandemics
 
This year’s CSA conference will be virtual, taking place synchronously with live zoom presentations and audience.
 
All faculty and doctoral students are welcome to submit a proposal to organize a session for the 2021 conference.
 
To propose your session, please contact the program chair and president-elect Xuan Santos at the following address: calisoc2021@yahoo.com
 
Themes for session topics should be broad and inclusive. Sample topics include “Social Inequality,” “Race and Ethnicity,” “Social Movements,” etc.  We also welcome proposals for special sessions such as “student sessions” for undergraduate presentations, poster sessions, author-meets-critic, and panel sessions on timely or controversial topics. 
 
Session organizers are expected to actively solicit presenters for their session. In the call for papers, we ask presenters to send a presentation title and a one paragraph abstract to the session organizer. Because we welcome all submissions, session organizers are to forward any submission deemed incompatible for their session to the program chair, who will coordinate its placement.
 
We are again reducing the conference registration fees by 50%. In order to appear on the program, all organizers and presenters must pre-register by October 23, 2021.
 
Please consider submitting nominations for our student awards. We continue to sponsor a community college student award, an undergraduate student award, and a graduate student award. Winners receive a monetary gift and plaque, and will be announced at the awards ceremony during the virtual conference. See more details here https://cal-soc.org/awards/.
 
While we forego our in-person meeting, the CSA will continue our tradition of hosting high-quality presentations within a supportive atmosphere; we ask you to join us in making this year’s CSA conference a great success.
