RSF Staff to Host Virtual Sessions and Booth at ASA Conference

August 5, 2020

Russell Sage Foundation staff will host two virtual events at the American Sociological Association conference, which will be held from August 8-11, 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the conference is now a virtual event.

On Saturday, August 8 at 1:30 EDT, Senior Program Officer Leana Charath and Program Director James Wilson will lead a session about seeking grants from private foundations. This session will feature a panel discussion along with program staff from the William T. Grant Foundation and the Spencer Foundation. It will include a presentation of the three foundations’ funding priorities and application and review processes, followed by a question and answer period. A recording of this session will be available at a later date on the foundation's website.

On Sunday, August 9 at 5:30 pm EDT, RSF's Director of Publications Suzanne Nichols will co-host a session on publishing with a university press with a colleague at New York University Press. Sponsored by The Association of University Presses, this workshop will help participants learn about the basics of book publishing, including writing a compelling proposal, finding a press, and the peer review process. Participants are invited to ask questions after the presentation.

The foundation is also hosting a virtual booth at ASA. Conference attendees can save up to 20% on RSF books.
