Hawai‘i Sociological Association (HSA) 

43rd Annual Conference

February 24-25, 2023

Honolulu, HI


Breaking Borders:

Interdisciplinary Dialogues 


Sociology explores every facet of our society- from the criminal justice system to notions of self to local cultures and concepts of sovereignty. Many who do not formally identify as "sociologists," are, in fact, some of the key players doing important sociological work, particularly in Hawai'i. HSA's 2023 Annual Conference bridges the separation between formal and informal social scientists, and creates a space for interdisciplinary dialogues about our social world. 

HSA invites the submission of panels, papers, posters, and interactive workshops that highlight and examine interdisciplinary perspectives on our social world, and ultimately break down the borders of academic fields.


Panels, workshops, papers and posters on teaching methodologies and professional development (e.g., non-academic careers in sociology, preparing for the job market, graduate school, and tenure track) are also welcomed. Work focused on sociological research, teaching, and service conducted in Native Hawaiian and Indigenous, LGBTQ+, and POC contexts are particularly encouraged.


HSA welcomes submissions that fall outside of the conference theme, but encourages participants to consider how their perspectives, processes, or conclusions connect to the theme of cross-field conversations. 

Deadline to submit abstract: Saturday, October 15, 2022

Deadline extended to Tuesday, November 1, 2022

(See the 'Submit an Abstract' tab above.)
