TASA Book Club 

Each month TASA Book Club shall focus upon works that have some form of societal reflective element that could be a work of fiction, non-fiction, or something in between. They continue to be a means for sociologists to connect with likeminded people. 

We also welcome book nominations that you believe fellow TASA members would enjoy exploring.If you have book suggestion that you would like to share, please send your ideas to Aisling

The schedule for 2024 will be updated as events are booked in for the year.
