Registration Form

St. John Fisher Colege and the Department of Sociology & Anthropology are proud to host the NYSSA annual meeting for 2017.

The election of Donald Trump and the associated consequences have made the need for sociological insights and expertise even more essential. The classic sociological areas of research and interest around power and inequality, and the ways that social characteristics shape life chances are in the forefront of our day to day lives in an urgent and troubling way.With so many people suprised by the election results and the events that have followed, the analysis and insights of sociology are needed now more than ever. The program this year includes sessions on a diverse range of topics from the opiod epidemic to student retention rates at liberal arts institutions to the conesequences of gentrification. Join us for the sharing and celebration of science for public good.

Program Coming Soon!
