The Preliminary Program is now available online!
The preliminary program for the 63rd Annual Meeting of the Society for the Study of Social Problems is now available!
President R. A. Dello Buono and his Program Committee have worked diligently to organize workshops and collaborative sessions on the theme: Re-imagining Social Problems: Moving Beyond Social Constructionism. As a collective project of scholar-activists, the SSSP is all about making real social change happen. In New York City, we invite participants to challenge established views and contemplate the limits of existing approaches to social problems, including those of social constructionism. We call on progressive analysts and social practitioners alike to join us at the Annual Meeting to collectively re-imagine social problems in a space where you can "say it out loud."
Please click below to review the program, make your travel arrangements, and pre-register for the conference. We look forward to seeing you from August 9-11 at the Westin New York at Times Square in New York, New York.
