TASA Annual Conference is the major academic activity each year. It is usually held in late November and is hosted by a university, with support from the TASA Executive and a Professional Conference Organiser. The Conference features keynote speakers, concurrent sessions, a trade display and social events, and provides opportunities for networking with colleagues from Australia and overseas. The conferences are large enough to showcase a broad cross-section of cutting-edge Australian research, and small enough to remain friendly and accessible. Student participation is encouraged through reduced fees and scholarships. Full details about the scholarships can be viewed here.
The 2018 Conference theme is Precarity, Rights and Resistance: November 19 – 22. Hosted by TASA & Deakin University, Burwood campus. Further details are available via the 2018 TASA Conference website. In the meantime, papers from previous conferences, including the our 2017 event, can be accessed via the links on the right hand side of this page.
Please note: TASA reciprocal agreements allow TASA members to attend conferences of the American Sociological Association, the British Sociological Association, the Sociological Association of Aotearoa of New Zealand, and the Sociological Association of Ireland at discounted rates.
