The Sociology Students Association at the CUNY Graduate Center invites you to its first annual graduate student conference on Friday, November 20, 2009. This year's title is "Sociological Reimagination: Crisis and Critique Today."
Our times are often described in terms of crisis, threat, indeterminacy, transformation, and hope/lessness. In this moment we want to ask: What sociological imagination do we need now to understand the present and make sociology relevant to the future?
Along with addressing pressing issues such as migration, social welfare, community mobilization, homeownership, disaster, and war, we want to think about sociology's understanding of time, place, and experience.
