Sociologists to explore real utopias at annual meeting in Denver, August 17-20
Date:7/10/2012

More than 5,000 sociologists will convene in Denver, Colorado, this August to explore ideas and scientific research relating to sociology and real utopias, as part of the American Sociological Association's 107th Annual Meeting. The idea of real utopias embraces an existing tension between dreams and practice, and challenges sociologists to ground utopian ideals in the real potentials of humanity.

The conference will feature nearly 600 sessions and over 3,200 studies covering such timely topics as health and health care, the 2012 presidential election, the "Occupy" movement, the recession, same-sex marriage, education, bullying, war, religion, immigration, sex, race, relationships, crime, families, politics, technology, poverty, the workplace, and many others. Given the diverse range of topics that will be covered, ASA's Annual Meeting will provide a wealth of information for journalists assigned to nearly any beat.
