SASA Working Group

    "Dear colleagues,


    At the beginning of last year, the council reviewed existing working groups and the adhoc manner in which they operate (mostly operational during SASA Congress) and decided that it was important to move away from temporary groups to more sustainable ones where subject matter experts can meet, collaborate on projects and exchange ideas. Part of that decision was premised upon the fact that it was important to have well established working groups with subject matter experts who would work together with a common goal, as representatives of SASA.


    To that end, we are inviting you to participate in an online survey that aims to capture important sub disciplinary information about your membership of a working group in SASA. Our goal is to hear from every member of SASA, including postgraduate students, who are currently conducting research or engaged within specific sub disciplinary areas, and those who would like to join a working group. The results from the survey will be used to kick start active working groups across various Sociology departments in South Africa.

    The survey would take about 20-30 minutes to complete and the you can find the link below:
