TASA Thursdays

TASA Thursdays
was launched on Thursday April 23, 2020. What began as a way to help our members stay connected during the pandemic lockdowns of 2020 & 2021, TASA Thursdays continued throughout 2022 and will be a feature in TASA' s 2023 calendar also. The sessions are an opportunity for members to showcase their work or present on a topical issue. They continue to be a means for sociologists to connect with likeminded people.  The recorded sessions are available on our YouTube channel here. 

Roger Wilkinson, our Digital Publications Editor, hosts the monthly webinars and, in 2023, Richa George, our Postgraduate Portfolio Leader, together with the Postgraduate Sub-Committee, host the monthly Postgraduate sessions.  The schedule for 2023 will be updated as events are booked in for the year. 

Note, you can register for an event via the links included in the event titles.
