ASA is coming and I am very excited. In addition to the guaranteed-awesome blogger party, hosted by Jenn Lena and Gina Neff in honor of their respective book publications, there are tons of other exciting social and academic events.

If you’re trying to find me in particular, drop me a line in the comments or send me an email! Also, I’ll be attending (at least some of) the Junior Theorists Symposium the day before ASA. On Friday, I’ll be at the ever-scintillating Economic Sociology Business Meeting followed closely by the much more important Econ Soc reception. And if you want to hear about my recent work with Ellen Berrey and Fiona Rose Greenland on the dequantification of affirmative action at Michigan, come to our presentation at 12:30pm on Monday, at the session on Knowledge Institutions: Disciplines and Universities. The whole panel looks excellent!

See you in Denver!



  1. Watch out for Loic Waquant’s left hook. I saw the damage done to the Junior Theorists last year, and it wasn’t pretty.

    I suspect this year’s discussants have been given a memo to not be like Loic Waquant was last year. If you’re at JTS, tell Iddo I said hi! (We were in the same grad cohort.)

  3. I wish you session wasnt on Monday…I fly out on Sunday. Will you be posting highlights or have a paper you would be willing to share?

    • I’d be happy to share the paper, especially once we finish the next version of it (which will hopefully be right after ASA). Send me an email at asociologist at umich dot edu and I’ll be sure to send it to you!
