The tree-lined, urban campus sits along the Olmsted Crescent, a historic area of parkways and landscape designed by Frederick Law Olmsted.  Adjacent to Delaware Park and the Buffalo Zoological Gardens, the undergraduate college is also within walking distance of Frank Lloyd Wright’s six-structure Darwin Martin House.

Conference Theme:  This year’s conference theme, “Points of Intersection: Scholars, Activists, and Practitioners” is inspired by the mission of NYSSA which is dedicated to providing a space for sociologists, and those interested in sociology, to present their work and exchange ideas.  Specifically, we are inviting academics, researchers, students, activists, practitioners, and policymakers to submit papers that bring a sociological perspective to any topic, including interdisciplinary work. Session formats will include panels and posters, and we will make every effort to include your presentation in our program.  Note: all posters should be delivered to the registration desk by Friday at noon and will be on display throughout the rest of the conference.

Student Participation:  NYSSA has traditionally encouraged participation by undergraduate and graduate students.  Student presentations are integrated into the regular conference proceedings. To stimulate student participation the association presents a cash award to the best undergraduate and graduate student papers presented at the conference.  Student Paper Award Submission Deadline: September 22, 2013

Submission Information:   Please submit an abstract of 250 words or less to Dr. Timothy McCorry (e-mail tam332@medaille.edu).  Be sure to note the session format you prefer (panel or poster) and specify any special equipment or arrangements you will need to make your presentation successful.
