  • Section session: New Approaches to Inequality and Consumption (organizers: Daniel Fridman, and Amanda Anthony,
  • Open topic: Consumers and Consumption (organizer: Joel Stillerman;
  • Section refereed roundtables (organizer: Michelle Weinberger; The roundtables are a vibrant and collegial forum—please consider being included if your section session submission isn’t successful.

Please note that participants must register for the meeting, and are encouraged to hold membership in ASA and in the Consumers and Consumption section. Section dues are only $10 ($5 for students).  Members get to:

  • contribute to the section Consume This! blog which is well-produced and well-circulated,
  • network with economic and cultural sociologists more tightly and intimately connected than those you find in the bigger ASA sections like, well, economic sociology and culture,
  • participate in our mini conference this year, taking place at Rutgers University-Camden immediately prior to ASA, and
  • submit work to the graduate student paper award.
