Submission Deadline: May 15, 2023
The 53rd Annual Conference is dedicated to exploring the ways in which sociologists and scholarly partners can confront, challenge, and contribute to the eradication of the assault unfolding in certain sectors of the public on the critical and crucial research done by Black sociologists.
We invite general papers and sessions that draw on the Black Sociological Tradition, centering voices and experiences of Black people. Space will be devoted to, but not limited to, young scholars, centering Black women, and Black public sociology. All interested individuals are invited to submit papers as well as proposals for complete sessions (three-to-four papers) and
roundtables (including: Regular Sessions, Salon Noir Book Talks, Regional Spotlight Sessions, Thematic Sessions, Poster Sessions, and Workshops) on the conference theme, the state of the field, or any general substantive field related to Black sociology.
All program participants must be current 2023 ABS members. The ABS membership year runs from January 1 through December 31 each year. To be included in the final program, all participants must join and register by the registration deadline of July 10, 2023.
We look forward to seeing you in Philadelphia.
