Fargo, N.D. — The Western Social Science Association is calling for paper and session proposals for its 54th annual conference April 11-14, 2012, in Houston. The program coordinator for the conference is Tom Isern, University Distinguished Professor of history at NDSU, who is the organization’s president-elect.
Isern said he is responsible for putting together more than 600 presentations for the three-day conference, and he invites colleagues to consider submitting proposals.
“The association is a house with many rooms. It has sections of the program devoted not only to traditional social science fields such as sociology and political science, but also to a variety of subject specializations like women's studies, Canadian studies, chronic disease and disability, and many others,” said Isern. “The variety of disciplines and subjects addressed means that the meeting is an opportunity not only for people in traditional social science disciplines but also the humanities, the applied human sciences and other areas. I encourage scholars to have a look at the list of sections of the association and see if one of them might suit their interests.”
