The Sociology of Education Association (SEA) is an informal group of scholars and educators from both the fields of sociology and education, who meet annually to engage in discussion of issues at the intersection of sociology and education.
SEA exists outside of the formal structure of any of the major professional associations. To belong to SEA you do not need to be a member of ASA, AERA, or any other organization.
Membership in the Sociology of Education Association (SEA) is included in the SEA Annual Conference registration fees. Conference registration is open each October. Please click on ‘2015 conference’ for more information. Membership dues entitle you to the Sociology of Education Association listserv, and newsletters or mailings.
- To provide an inexpensive annual conference (held at Asilomar on the Monterey Bay Peninsula, California) in which colleagues from education, sociology, and other social sciences can come together for discussion of topics of common interest.
- To provide an organizing vehicle for people interested in education and sociology to get to know each other and to communicate outside of the conference.
- To introduce graduate students and new Ph.D.’s into this community of scholars.
- To serve as an information conduit for persons interested in education and sociology to hear about recent research, job openings, and other news of interest to the membership.
