Distinguished lecture by Jean-François Côté,

Professor of Sociology, Université du Québec à Montréal

 

For forty years, the SSSI has been a professional home for scholars with roots in American pragmatism and the study of identity, everyday practice, and language. Over the decades, what was once a radical alternative to positivism has become accepted by the mainstream. We have endured debates over micro vs. macro, social realism vs. interpretivism, and structure vs. agency. The 2017 annual conference will celebrate the many directions that symbolic interactionist research takes for investigating social issues and envisioning social change.
