Hello all!

We are gearing up for an excellent meeting in Denver. Below I highlight the CITASA sponsored sessions, give information on the reception, and high light other sessions of interest to members.

A few items to note. First, the reception: It will be Sunday night, from 6-8:30 pm (note early start time) at the historic Magnolia Ballroom. The menu features Asian themed appetizers, a sushi display and dessert platters. We'll have festive cocktails, wine, beer, and sparkling wine on hand. Please join us!

Second,  we have a full day of activities on Monday. We obtained an extra invited session this year. At 12:30 on Monday Christena Nippert-Eng, Karin Knorr Cetina, Chandra Mukerji and Pablo Boczkowski will present work in a highlighted session on Culture and Technology.  As an invited session, this one doesn't show on the ASA system under our section, so I just bring it to your attention.

Third, there are several sessions concerning work of interest to our members and featuring CITASA members. Two of particular interest are Social Stratification and Internet Practices (Friday 8:30-10:10) and
Critical Perspectives on the Internet and Society (Saturday 12:30 - 2:10). Please do check these out.

Finally, please connect with us on Twitter at #citasa or #asa2012 for updates and discussion.

I list below in a thumbnail sketch the schedule.

Looking forward to seeing you all in Denver!
