U of T Sociologists at the 2021 Canadian Sociological Association Meeting

May 20, 2021 by Victoria Shi

Sociologists at the University of Toronto will again join with colleagues from across the country for this year's Canadian Sociological Association Annual Conference (CSA). The Conference will be held virtually this year (by the University of Alberta) as part of the Congress of Social Sciences and Humanities from May 31st – June 4th.

The Congress of Social Sciences and Humanities brings together over 70 scholarly associations under one annual gathering. Its purpose is to give academics, researchers, policy-makers, and practitioners the opportunity to discuss and share ideas that directly concern the lives of Canadians. The Congress's theme this year is "Northern Relations." This theme encourages participants to interact with and listen to the voices of northern peoples– both Indigenous and non-Indigenous. Likewise, the CSA's theme for this year is "Resisting Racism and Colonialism." 2021 marks the 56th annual conference of the CSA.

This year, 71 of our Sociology Department's faculty members and graduate students will be participating in the CSA meeting. 17 of our faculty members will be presenters or chairs. Graduate students that will present range from Master's students to recent PhD graduates. This includes 20 doctoral candidates who will present research related to their dissertations, 26 pre-dissertation PhD students, 6 MA students, and 2 PhD graduates.
