The program for this year's conference is out!
Theme: The theme for the 2015 Annual Meeting of the New York State Sociological Association (NYSSA) is "Boots on the Ground: Doing Public Sociology." There is a long tradition in Sociology of working outside of the "ivory tower," and a growing number of sociologists are seeking to use their work to influence public policy and effect social change. This year, NYSSA honors and explores that tradition by devoting our annual meeting to public sociology and its applications and implications. We are seeking submissions related to social change and bettering the human condition through advocacy and activism as well a wide variety of papers on traditional sociological themes and topics from related academic fields.
Our Keynote Speaker will be: Trevor R. Pinch, Cornell University.
Professor Pinch earned his Ph.D. at the University of Bath. His research interests include:
1. The Sociology of Technology and how users engage with technology.
2. Sound Studies and music and in particular how sonic technologies and listening
3. Understanding the role of materiality and agency in technology.
4. Markets and the economy with specific attention to the study of selling, persuasion,
Professor Pinch also broadcasts and webcasts a weekly radio show, "Webwatch," out of
Paris, hosted by Radio France International.
In addition, Professor Pinch is an advisor to the music technology start-up, "Thinkplay."
