SASE Mini-Conferences

by Henry on July 12, 2011

I’m now on the executive committee of SASE, the Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics, which is a kind of professional organization for economic sociologists and hangers-on like me. The organization’s annual meeting was in Madrid this year, and will be in Boston (at MIT) next year. One of the more interesting features of SASE meetings is that you can propose ‘mini-conferences,’ where you propose a theme around which a number of linked panels can be arranged. Hence my desire to let CT readers know about the “request for proposals”:http://www.sase.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=322&Itemid=46. Proposals are due by September 1; the 2012 overall conference theme is “Global Shifts: Implications for Business, Government and Labour” which should, I imagine, intersect nicely with the interests of a lot of CT readers.
