We are currently a few dozen members shy of the 300 member threshold needed to keep our current level of funding, number of sessions, and ability to put on things like our upcoming pre-ASA mini-conference.
What can you do to help? We’re so glad you asked!
If you are an ASA member but not a member of the consumption section, please join! Short on funds? Contact section chair Ashley Mears, who has generously offered to buy gift memberships for those who need them.
Already a member of the section? Buy gift memberships for your students and colleagues! (See below for instructions)
Looking for more ways to support our excellent section? Send out an email blast! Let other scholars in your network know about the great work we do.
As a member, you’ll be put on our once-a-month email digest mailing list with updates on our monthly blog, Consume This!, as well as our section website, which announces new publications and publishing opportunities, job listings, fellowships and grants, etc. Even if these aren’t directly relevant to you, it might be useful information for your students or colleagues!
Help us maintain the thriving intellectual community we’ve worked so hard to build. Please spread the word!
