We encourage all American Sociological Association members to join the Section on the History of Sociology. ASA members can join the section upon renewing their ASA membership through the online membership system; alternatively, you can fill out the section membership form, print it out, and fax it to the ASA at (202) 638-0882. If you are not a member of ASA but are interested in the work of the History of Sociology section, consider joining ASA so you can become a member of the Section. More information about ASA membership, including a frequently asked questions document, is available on the join or renew page. Section dues are payable by check or charge and are only $10 per year, or $5 if you are a student member of ASA. Section membership includes a subscription to the section newsletter, Timelines.

In an effort to increase our membership, and to get the work of HoS out to graduate students and the work of more graduate students into HoS, the Section invites contributions from members to support student membership (we are not allowed to use our ASA funding for this purpose). If you know graduate students who would be interested, we continue to encourage you to sponsor memberships for them directly. However, for members who do not know any, this is an opportunity to sponsor graduate students elsewhere who might have a lot to offer, and for whom HoS could be an important opportunity. Over the winter, we will be contacting graduate departments across the country and asking them to recommend Section membership to their students, particularly those enrolled in Classical Theory courses, and the Section will offer to support as many of those memberships as we can. Student membership is only $5; we welcome contributions in any multiple of this amount to support the student membership endeavor. Checks for contributions can be made out to Mikaila Mariel Lemonik Arthur, Secretary-Treasurer of the Section, and mailed to her at Department of Sociology, Rhode Island College, 600 Mount Pleasant Ave, Providence, RI, 02906; they will be forwarded on to ASA as we establish a fund for this purpose.
