blogcation august 2016/ASA line up
Org theory people are just coming home from the Academy of Management meetings and sociologists are about to leave for the American Sociological Association meetings. I am also trying to wrap up a really, really, really ridiculously cool project that I am so going to tell you about. So we’re taking a break here till next week. But, boy, do we have some good stuff coming up:
- A mini-symposium on the sociology of Trump: Tim Gill from Tulane will write about political performance and Josh Pacewicz from Brown will approach the Trump candidacy from the perspective of class politics.
- Catching up on books: The Inner Lives of Markets by Ray Fishman and Tim Sullivan; Anthony Ocampo’s The Latinos of Asia; and The Second Machine Age by Brynjolfsson and McAfee.
- Article discussion of “Racism and Discrimination” by Nancy DiTomaso
- My response to Pamela Oliver’s post on mass incarceration. Hint: Don’t wait. Read it now.
Also, if you are at the ASA, please drop by and say hello. I would love to meet you. I’ll be at the following events:
- The historical/comparative sociology mini-conference.
- Panel discussion on Black Power outcomes (Sunday 10:30 AM).
- Author meets critics for Joyce Bell’s book, The Black Power Movement and American Social Work (Monday 10:30 AM).
- Regular panel on new work on healthcare professions (Monday 4:30pm) .
See you after ASA!
