A proposed session that some of our members might be interested in submitting some of their work.

SSS Annual Meeting (2013)

Call for Papers: Technology Adoption and Adaptation

Due in part to the increasing prevalence of information and communication technologies (ICTs) as well as the increasing accessibility of the Internet, it is important for sociologists to examine how and why people use (or don't use) new technologies and their applications; it is also important for sociologists to examine how these technologies affect the individual and society as a whole.  We are organizing a session exploring technology adoption and adaptation/acceptance from a sociological perspective.  If you are interested in presenting a paper that focuses on technology adoption and/or adaptation, theoretical or empirical, please send your abstract to rberk at uab.edu<mailto:rberk at uab.edu>.

The deadline for submission for this session is Friday, October 26th.  Abstracts should be constructed using the guidelines on the SSS website (and should include the title of the paper, authors' names/affiliations/contact info, and a summary of theoretical framework/methods/findings).  Decisions will be made on all submitted abstracts no later than October 29th - if your paper is not chosen, this will give you time to individually submit your paper through the SSS website.

If you have any questions, please send an email to rberk at uab.edu<mailto:rberk at uab.edu>.  We look forward to hearing from you!
