This two-part symposium, funded by the American Sociological Association’s Fund for the Advancement of the Discipline, will take place in two cities: Denver, CO and Providence, RI. The first meeting will be hosted by the University of Colorado-Denver from April 6-7, 2018. The second meeting will take place at Brown University October 26-27, 2018. Each part of the symposium will include a keynote and panel presentations on the first-day followed by workshops on the second day for participants whose papers will be considered for a journal special issue organized around the conference topic. A welcome reception for presenters will also be held the night preceding the start of the symposium.
