Third Annual UCSD Culture Conference
Friday, May 4, 2007
The Great Hall
University of California, San Diego

It has become an annual event. Building on the success of our conferences in the last two years, the 2007 conference will again feature a rich and vibrant diversity of scholarship in cultural sociology. 
Michele Lamont (
Harvard University) and Katherine Newman (Princeton University) will be this year’s keynote speakers. We will continue to have a panel addressing the use of culture in sociology’s subfields, featuring:
Marion Fourcade-Gourinchas (UC Berkeley) on economic sociology Richard Madsen (UC
San Diego) on religion
Dawne Moon (UC Berkeley) on sexuality
John Skrentny (UC
San Diego) on race and ethnicity
Please save the date for the Third Annual UCSD Culture Conference to participate in a full day of talks, discussions, and networking with other sociologists who share an interest in culture. 
More details will come in December.  For details on the last two years’ events, see:
