Welcome to SWS-South!

If you are a new member or thinking about joining, please feel free to contact me about this wonderful organization. We are a strong network of scholars that work diligently to mentor and support all of our members.

We are a vibrant group that meets annually at the Southern Sociological Society meetings. At the annual meetings, we sponsor research presentations, teaching sessions, and professional workshops. We host a silent auction that takes place during a coffee and dessert reception. The proceeds from the auction go to a local organization serving women in need.

This welcoming group is committed to research and activism that supports the success of all women in society, as well as one another in a wide variety of professional settings (including awards for gender scholarship). We would love to see you at these sessions, the auction, and our business meeting in New Orleans, LA in April 2018.

Before the meeting, or once you get there, you can become a member by contacting one of our Membership Co-chairs, Leslie Hossfeld or Penny Harvey.

We also welcome new ideas for sessions or workshops, as well as sessions that you organize. If you have an idea or would like to put a session together, email our Vice President, Shannon Carter.

Check back later to find out what local agency will be the beneficiary of our silent auction and how you can help the cause. We will also have a special session featuring that organization.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me to become more involved or ask questions.

Announcements

This year, we would like to purchase supplies (pens, ribbons, etc.) for our registration table at the annual meeting and signage for events. Thus, we are campaigning for funds for these items. You can make a donation here. The largest contributor will get two years of SWS-South membership FREE. If we raise $200.00, I will personally match that donation.
