from the president:
Thank you for visiting the SWS-South webpage!
It is my honor to welcome you here and invite you to join us. We are a vibrant group that meets annually at the Southern Sociological Society meetings. We sponsor research presentations, teaching sessions, and professional workshops. We also host a silent auction that takes place during a coffee and dessert reception, with proceeds going to a local organization that serves women in need. In all, we are a welcoming group, committed to research and activism that supports the success of all women in society, as well as one another in a wide variety of professional settings (including awards for gender scholarship). We would love to see you at these sessions, the auction, and our business meeting in Atlanta in April 2016.
Before the meeting, or once you get there, you can become a member by contacting Membership Chair Lanier Basenberg. We also welcome new ideas for sessions or workshops, as well as sessions that you organize. If you have an idea or would like to put a session together, email our Vice-President Stephanie Gonzalez-Guittar.
For 2016, we’re thrilled to be working with Lost N Found as the beneficiary of our silent auction. We will also have a special session featuring the organization and the issue of LGBT homeless youth.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me to become more involved or ask questions. See you in Atlanta!
