TASA Thursdays


TASA Thursdays
was launched on Thursday April 23, 2020. What began as a way to help our members stay connected during the pandemic lockdowns of 2020 & 2021, TASA Thursdays have continued in 2022. The sessions are an opportunity for members to showcase their work or present on a topical issue. They continue to be a means for sociologists to connect with likeminded people.  The recorded sessions are available on our YouTube channel here. 

Roger Wilkinson, our Digital Publications Editor, hosts the monthly webinars and Anthony K J Smith, our Postgraduate Portfolio Leader, together with the Postgraduate Sub-Committee, host the monthly Postgraduate sessions.  The schedule for 2022 is listed below. Note, you can register for an event via the links included in the event titles. 

2023 events: Note, we are very happy to report that we have locked in our first event for 2023; 'The Far Right in Australia: Historical insights’ with panellists Raewyn Connell, Pam Nilan, Josh Roose, & Mario Peucker. Thursday 16 February, 2023, 12.30-1.30pm AEDT
