Vicki Smith is the 2012-13 Chair of the ASA Economic Sociology Section

The Economic Sociology Section is the 8th largest of the ASA's 52 sections. Vicki served as Chair-Elect for this position in 2011-12. She will be working with a contingent of UCD economic sociologists--both faculty and graduate students--to produce the section newsletters and organize the section round tables at the 2013 New York City meetings. UCD has a long affiliation with the subfield of economic sociology: colleagues Nicole Biggart and Fred Block were some of the movers and shakers behind the formation of this section in 2000; Biggart was also elected to chair it (2004-05).
