Introducing the Major Office Candidates for the ASA 2019 Elections

Introducing the major office candidates in this year’s American Sociological Association leadership election.

Over the past year and a half, the Sociocast Project has sought to develop academic sociology-focused podcast programming, with the goal of developing new and qualitatively-different discussions within our profession.

So far, sociologists from across the US and Canada have collaborated with this project to pilot four series concepts: (1) The Annex, an academic sociology-oriented banter and interview show, (2) The B-Side, an academic social science show with a black community-focused orientation, (3) Sociologia con Acento, a Spanish-language social science interview program, and (4) International Perspectives on Sociology, a showcase of discussions that are topical among academic sociologists of non-US national traditions.

Today, I am proud to announce the pilot episodes of a fifth show concept.: ASA 2019 Election Coverage. It is a “disciplinary civics” project that provides the ASA’s major office candidates with a platform to share their views on the discipline. For more, please visit:
