About Sociology

Sociology has become a central component of multi-disciplinary teaching, learning and research.

Directory of Research Expertise

On January 1st, 2012, TASA introduced the Directory of Research Expertise for use by the media, government agencies and researchers who wish to locate sociologists with particular areas of expertise. You can search for an expert by name – enter the name in the Keyword search box – or by making a selection from the Areas of Expertise drop down menu. Both search options can be used simultaneously. Please note, the number of listed experts will increase as members renew their memberships in the first few months of 2012.

Cannot find what you are looking for? Try the TASA Thematic Groups and Sociologists’ Blogs pages.

TASA members wanting to be included in this directory need to check the relevant boxes that appear when Interests are selected in Section 4 of the membership form; Areas of Interest. To update your selections, please have your membership log in details ready and click here. If you cannot locate your log in details, further instructions are available here. If you are still experiencing difficulties updating your TASA membership profile, please contact the TASA Office.
