117th Annual Meeting: Bureaucracies of Displacement
August 5-9, 2022 | Los Angeles | #ASA2022

The Annual Meeting of the American Sociological Association provides the opportunity for professionals involved in the scientific study of society to share knowledge and new directions in research and practice. Nearly 600 programmatic sessions are convened that provide a scholarly outlet for more than 3,000 research papers, over 4,500 presenters, and 5,000 attendees.

The ASA 117th Annual Meeting is scheduled to be held August 5-9, 2022 in Los Angeles, California. 2022 ASA President Cecilia Menjívar has chosen the theme “Bureaucracies of Displacement.” Read the full theme statement. ASA is carefully monitoring recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and others regarding the COVID-19 situation as we make plans to host the Annual Meeting in Los Angeles. At present, we are planning for an in-person event, but we may revise plans for the health and well-being of our community. Annual Meeting attendees will be required to follow all health and safety protocols mandated at the time of the meeting.

ASA will be taking many steps to ensure the health and wellbeing of meeting attendees. These steps include requirements for registrants such as full vaccination with booster and wearing masks at all times onsite or when using shuttle service. Access to sessions, events, and shuttle service will be limited to registrants wearing meeting badges. Information on how to provide vaccination information will be sent directly to registered attendees closer to the meeting date. We recognize that the COVID-19 situation is fluid and would like to remind attendees that requirements may change in line with evolving conditions.

2022 ASA President-elect Cecilia Menjívar has chosen the theme “Bureaucracies of Displacement.” Learn more.

Land Acknowledgement and Recognition
Before we can talk about sociology, power, and inequality, we must acknowledge our presence on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Gabrielino/Tongva peoples. The American Sociological Association (ASA), acknowledges that academic institutions, indeed the nation-state itself, was founded upon and continues to enact exclusions and erasures of Indigenous Peoples. This acknowledgement demonstrates a commitment to beginning the process of working to dismantle ongoing legacies of settler colonialism, and to recognize the hundreds of Indigenous Nations who continue to resist, live, and uphold their sacred relations across their lands. We also pay our respect to Indigenous elders past, present, and future and to those who have stewarded this land throughout the generations.
