TASA  November


In lieu of our annual conference, we are hosting TASA November; a two-pronged approach to replace TASA 2021. There are several in-person, hybrid and online only events scheduled for November. See further down for details. 
The second part of TASA November is the TASA Thematic Week. This is scheduled at the original time for TASA 2021; November 22nd – 26th. Like the conference, we will have keynotes, a plenary and concurrent presentation sessions as well as several panel sessions. There is no theme. Instead, we ask that you submit to a thematic group that best fits with your presentation content.

During TASA Thematic Week, our usual other events and meetings will be arranged – Postgraduate Day, Thematic Group Convenors' Meeting, Thematic Group meetings, President’s Speech, Professoriate meeting, Annual General Meeting etc. Depending on the number of submissions we receive, some of these meetings may be arranged for the week prior and post TASA Thematic Week.
Key dates for TASA Thematic Week are available on the right hand side menu.

Plenary: “Working beyond academia in and outside of universities”

As the study of human society, sociology offers critical insights into social structures, mechanisms, and relationships. Nevertheless, it can be challenging to translate sociology into evaluation strategies and practical outcomes for governments, industry, businesses, and community groups. In this plenary, sociologists experienced working inside and outside of university settings and with divergent actors (government, industry, business, community), will explore their research and how they have translated and applied sociology. This will include consideration for some of the tensions and challenges they have faced in this process.


Professor Vaughan Higgins (UTAS)
Dr Joseph Borlagdan (Brotherhood of St Laurence)
Dr Katherine Carroll (ANU)
Dr Karen Soldatic (WSU)
Ricki Spencer (UniMelb)
