TASA Annual Conference is the major academic activity each year. It is usually held in late November and is hosted by a university, with support from the TASA Executive and a Professional Conference Organiser. The Conference features keynote speakers, concurrent sessions, a trade display and social events, and provides opportunities for networking with colleagues from Australia and overseas. The conferences are large enough to showcase a broad cross-section of cutting-edge Australian research, and small enough to remain friendly and accessible. Student participation is encouraged through reduced fees and scholarships. Full details about the scholarships can be viewed here.
The 2015 Conference theme is Neoliberalism and Contemporary Challenges for the Asia-Pacific: 23 – 26 November. Hosted by TASA, James Cook University & The Cairns Institute, Cairns. Further details are available via the ‘2015 TASA Conference‘ webpages. In the meantime, papers from the recent 2014 conference can be accessed via the 2014 conference link on the right hand side of this page.
Please note: TASA reciprocal agreements allow TASA members to attend conferences of the American Sociological Association, the British Sociological Association, the Sociological Association of Aotearoa of New Zealand, and the Sociological Association of Ireland at discounted rates.
