The Southwestern Social Science Association (SSSA), founded in 1919, is the oldest interdisciplinary social-science association in the United States. By way of studying the present and the past, and through pondering possible futures, the social sciences together have a vital mission: promoting knowledge and understanding amid the complexities and transient aspects of today’s world. Propelling that mission, the SSSA brings together professional scholars, graduate students, and undergraduates from across the country and the world in the spirit of intellectual growth, collaboration, and collegiality. It features affiliate associations in Economics, History, International Studies, Political Science, Social Work, Sociology, and Women’s and Gender Studies, as well as participants from Anthropology and Psychology. Each year more than 1,000 social scientists gather at our annual meetings to avail themselves of a bevy of formats, including panels, roundtables, workshops, and poster opportunities, for presenting research and discussing various aspects of academia. The SSSA also boasts the Social Science Quarterly, a highly regarded and well-ranked interdisciplinary journal published by Wiley-Blackwell. We invite you to join our association, share your work with a welcoming and collaborative community of scholars and students at our annual meetings, and help us celebrate the social sciences!
