News from ISA


First time attending ISA?

Whether you’re an Early Career Scholar (ECS) or a tenured professor, attending an international convention of this magnitude can be overwhelming. We want to ensure that you not only have a positive professional experience, but enjoy everything about ISA that makes us unique.

For our ECS’s, we have a number of professional development and networking opportunities for you at ISA 2019. From the Off the Beaten Path roundtable, which this year addresses how to write for the media, to an array of professional development Career Courses and panels, you will be sure to learn new skills and get great career advice. In addition, the Junior Scholar Symposium (JSS), ISA First Time Convention Attendees Welcome Meet and Greet, and the Early Career Scholar Lounge and Town Hall, will be terrific spaces for you to make connections far beyond the Annual Convention.

The ECS Lounge will become your new favorite space as it offers a serene lounge environment where you can relax, unwind or prep for a presentation. It will also have daily skills-building and networking activities that you won’t want to miss!

Don’t forget about the many receptions and business meetings that are hosted by our ISA Sections and Caucuses where you can network with colleagues who share your research interests and also learn about some of the great initiatives that are occurring among your cohort.

Of course, we welcome back the Sapphire Series, as well as the Structuring Inclusion series, which aims to take a close look at the state of the discipline and how best to critique and navigate it. We’re also very excited to invite you to unwind at the Presidential Address and Reception, which will be on Thursday night.

Additionally, the 2019 Convention in Toronto marks the 60th Anniversary of ISA! We are gathering historical documentation of the different parts of the Association to be shared in Toronto and think this would be a wonderful opportunity for first time attendees to learn more about the Association.

We're excited to see you in Toronto!
