The Mid-South Sociological Association is excited to announce that the submission portal for the annual meeting is NOW OPEN! The MSSA Annual Meeting will be in New Orleans, LA, October 11-14, 2023, at the historic Dillard University. We are accepting in-person and virtual presentations. We invite research papers from any and all disciplines, including those with an interdisciplinary focus. Please consider submitting your papers/abstracts early, to help ensure a spot in the session of your choice. 

We have some very exciting paper session topics! If you are unsure of where your paper might best fit or if it does not fit in any of the listed sessions, please select two – four keywords that fit your topic. Also, consider participation in one of our panels, roundtables, poster sessions, or workshops that will be included in the program this fall.

Submit your paper title and abstract through our online submission marketplace. Indicate whether you will present in-person or virtually. Instructions for navigating the marketplace and submitting your proposal is available, HERE.

If you have any questions/concerns and/or suggestions please contact me, MSSA President-Elect and Program Chair, tcdavids@samford.edu.
