ESS 2021 CALL FOR ABSTRACT SUBMISSIONS
FOR THEMATIC SESSIONS

Program Theme: Diversity and Its Discontents in the Wake of Covid-19
Virtual and Streamlined
February 18-21, 2021
Submission Deadline: October 15, 2020


The Covid-19 pandemic has exposed the diversity and inequality in the United States and abroad in nearly every domain of social life, and has also laid bare the discontents. In this context, the Program Committee conceived of thematic sessions designed to shed light on the manifold ways in which Covid-19 has affected our lives, each of which builds on the program theme, “Diversity and Its Discontents in the Wake of Covid-19.”

The ESS 2021 Program Committee now invites abstract submissions for consideration to the Thematic Sessions listed below. The submissions should be in the form of a 250-word abstract. We ask that you submit only one abstract to only one session. Please do not submit multiple abstracts to multiple sessions or a single abstract to more than one session.

Please e-mail the abstracts directly to the Organizers and Presiders of each session by October 15, 2020 at 11:59pm ET, and include “ESS 2021 Submission” in the e-mail header. We aim to make decisions by December 1, 2020.
