ASSA 2021 Virtual Annual Meeting: Registration, ASE Sessions, and Other Updates

Due to the current pandemic environment, the ASSA 2021 Annual Meeting will be held as a virtual event from January 3-5, 2021 and registrations are now being accepted via the AEA website.

The ASE is sponsoring (or co-sponsoring) eight paper sessions and an opening plenary session and Q&A session with Professor Darrick Hamilton (Henry Cohen Professor of Economics and Urban Policy and Director, Institute for the Study of Race, Stratification, and Political Economy, The New School). In keeping with the broad theme of stratification, Professor Hamilton’s talk is titled “Beyond Class Reductionism: Race Has Been a Pillar in Our Economy.”

Detailed instructions and session links will be generated closer to the start of the virtual meeting. Please see the AEA website for the preliminary program and search for ASE sessions by choosing “Association for Social Economics” from the drop-down menu. Please join us at the plenary session and ASE sessions!

Please note that under the current circumstances, the Presidential Breakfast is cancelled and the General Membership and Business Meeting will be held as a virtual event on Friday, January 22, 2021 from 3-5pm eastern time (“New York Time”). ASE awards typically presented at the Presidential Breakfast will instead be awarded at the General Membership and Business Meeting. Additional details concerning the virtual format of this meeting will be announced to ASE members in late December 2020 or early January 2021. Please stand by!
