From the Editors: American Sociological Association 2020

This weekend, we were due to be in San Francisco, California, to attend the American Sociological Association Annual Meeting. Unfortunately, like many things this year, the meeting was cancelled, meaning we won’t get the chance to meet with everyone and showcase our latest books. Our acquisitions editors Jodi Lewchuk, Carli Hansen, and Meg Patterson wanted to send a message to those who would have been in attendance at ASA and share how you can contact them to discuss potential projects.

Announcing Some of Our Major Award Winners

Congress may have been cancelled this year, but some big awards have been handed out in the past week and we’re delighted that our authors are receiving recognition for their achievements. In this post, we reveal some of the award winners.

From the Editors: Congress 2020

This week, we were due to be in London, Ontario, to attend Congress 2020. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the conference was cancelled, meaning we won’t get the chance to celebrate with other publishers and showcase our latest books. But we will try not to let that overshadow the tremendous work of all of our authors and scholarly publishing colleagues! Instead, we reached out to some of our editors and asked them what Congress means to them and if they would be willing to share some of the projects they have been working on.

The American Educational Research Association Virtual Book Exhibit

With the cancellation of this weekend’s American Educational Research Association annual meeting, we reached out to acquisitions editor Meg Patterson and asked her to talk us through some of the books she would have been displaying at AERA. Enjoy this virtual book exhibit!
