Welcome back!

Hope everyone had a great summer!

The GSSA is kicking off the new school year with a social gathering on Thursday at 7:30 pm (or earlier if the 4:30 classes end early) at the Auld Shebeen in old town Fairfax. (If you’re new to the area, click here for directions.) All new and returning students are welcome!

If you’d like to be involved in planning/organizing a slew of interesting fall events (in addition to our public sociology graduate conference in October) and you’re not on our e-mail list, e-mail us. We’ll be meeting to plan the upcoming semester very soon and want to hear your ideas!

If you’re new to the GSSA, here’s a quick tour of a few of the resources and highlights available on our website:

  • A regularly updated calendar that includes GMU academic deadlines, departmental events, other events around GMU of interest to sociologists (e.g., Women & Gender Studies, Cultural Studies, etc.), sociological events of note in the DC metro area, submission deadlines and conferences (local and major regional/national) to which you might submit your work, and GSSA events.
  • A comprehensive list of over two hundred sociology and social science journals to which you might submit your work, complete with h-indexes measuring reach/prestige.
  • The most recent issue of our newsletter, In the Field, published last fall. (A new issue will be published soon.)

For more about us and what we do, check out our About page, our Members page, and a list of past events we’ve sponsored.
