Dear Colleague,

LIBRARY OF SOCIAL SCIENCE is organizing the book exhibit for the 2017 meeting of the Pacific Sociological Association (PSA).

The annual PSA meeting is one of the largest and most popular sociological conferences, with well over 1,000 people expected to attend. This year’s meeting—“part conference, part movement”—will examine various forms of betrayal in academia, touching on sexual assault and its prosecution, equal opportunities questions, non-normative sexual identity, gender, race and ethnicity, and hostile work environments.

Papers will range across all sociological disciplines, representing the diversity of research questions, topics and methodologies.

Prominent scholars at the PSA meeting look for titles on the full range of Sociology topics. Publishers wishing to promote their Sociology titles cannot afford to miss this exciting event.

For information on exhibiting at the 2017 Pacific Sociological Association meeting, please email Hugh Galford at bookexhibits@libraryofsocialscience.com.

PSA attendees seek titles on all aspects of Sociology, including:

• Culture
• Digital sociology
• Ethnography
• Gender, work & family
• Military sociology
• Minorities/majorities
• Economics
• Education
• Law, policing & protest
• Social theory
• Social justice
• Race, class, ethnicity
• Migration & diversity
• Politics

The Library of Social Science book exhibit will be located at the center of the meeting space and open to attendees throughout the meeting.

Our professional exhibit managers will be on-site throughout the conference. We actively promote your titles by discussing books with conferees, distributing flyers and catalogs, selling books on-site using publisher-supplied order forms, and urging faculty to consider titles for course adoption and library acquisition.
