Each year, the Southern Sociological Society has an annual meeting somewhere in the southeast in late-March to early-April. This year, the meeting will take place in Jacksonville, Florida from April 6 to April 9. The SSS strongly supports undergraduate professional development. Accordingly, undergraduate students are welcome to present their work in a comfortable, supportive environment at the annual meeting. The undergraduate paper presentation sessions are identical to other paper presentation sessions except that these sessions have only undergraduate presenters.
The deadline for submitting a paper is December 1, 2010. Additional details regarding application procedures, etc., will be available shortly.
