We are very excited to be able to announce a new TASA initiative, 'The Australian Sociological Association’s Workshop Program'. The program has been on the Executive’s agenda for some time now with the initial launch interrupted by COVID-19. While we appreciate the pandemic may continue to thwart scheduled events, we will continue to support and promote sociology where we can.
