Pacific Sociological Association 2014 Annual meetings; Portland, Oregon, March 27-30
The 2014 annual meetings of the Pacific Sociological Association will be held at the Portland Marriott Downtown Waterfront in Portland, Oregon, from Thursday, March 27th through Sunday, March 30th. Portland offers a multitude of options for eating, drinking, socializing, and recreating -- much of it within a short walk of the Marriott. Portland resonates as a meeting location for many sociological reasons. It is a city that considers itself progressive and enlightened, yet one that struggles with a legacy of institutional racism and inequality. It is a magnet for artists, designers, and creative-minded people of all kinds, yet Portland’s post-recession economy offers limited opportunities for good jobs. Portland is a city trying to look ahead, while grappling with its past. It embraces imagination and vision, even while it confronts the hard economic realities of today. In these respects, the city embodies the theme of the meetings, which is “(Un)Changing Institutions: Work, Family, and Gender in the New Economy.”
