“People, Place, and Power” – the PSA in Long Beach, California, April 1-4, 2015

By President Patricia Gwartney

In deciding to attend a PSA meeting, members juggle three items: The theme, the place, and how to participate (not necessarily in that order). Articles in this issue of The Pacific Sociologist address all three.

In this essay, I briefly outline the meeting theme. Gary Hytrek’s essay explains how the meeting place, Long Beach CA, fits the meeting theme. Marisol Clark-Ibanez will elaborate on Long Beach’s many and unexpected attractions in the fall issue of The Pacific Sociologist. The 2015 Program Director, Wendy Ng, explains how to participate in the “Call for Papers” and I discuss this more below.

However, PSA also sets aside some Special Sessions on specialized topics for PSA committees, with an earlier submission period.

As a resident of Long Beach, I am excited that PSA has chosen Long Beach as its Southern California site
