Upcoming SSSP Deadlines and Reminders

We have a few announcements and reminders to bring to your attention. For more information on each, simply click on the links below.

1.  Nominate a book for the 2013 C. Wright Mills Award - deadline is December 15, 2013.

2.  The 2014 General Election ballot preview is available.  Voting will take place from March 15 - April 15, 2014.

3.  Remember to renew your membership for 2014, if you have not already.

4.  Submit a paper for the SSSP 2014 Annual Meeting - deadline is January 31, 2014.

6.  The Racial/Ethnic Minority Graduate Scholarship deadline is February 1, 2014.

7. Fifty Years Later:  Post-Great Recession Images of the Poverty in America and Beyond.  In the early 1960s, it was the stark images of photographers like Andrew Stern that stirred policymakers and the collective American conscience to take action against poverty. Fifty years later, it seems like we need visual images to again stir our collective conscience to address the work that remains.  Therefore, I invite SSSP members to submit electronic images of poverty in America and beyond during this post-Great Recession period.  These images will be included in my multimedia Presidential Address and/or in materials associated with our SSSP co-sponsored one-day Innovative Approaches to Poverty Summit.  Please submit your electronic images and completed release form by April 30, 2014 to President Anna Maria Santiago at

Happy Holidays!
