Ming-Cheng Lo has been elected as a council member for the Section on Sociology of Culture at the ASA.

Professor Ming-Cheng Lo has been elected a council member of the American Sociological Association’s Section on Sociology of Culture.
The Section on Sociology of Culture is one of 52 interest-specific sections in the ASA that promote the work being done in their field. They represent the section at the annual ASA conference and perform administrative duties such as writing newsletters, publishing journals, running the section’s social media accounts to provide valuable networking opportunities for sociologists.
Lo will serve a three-year term on the section’s eight-person council composed of both professional and student members. 
Lo’s research on cultural sociology includes studying how communities reconstruct after a disaster, how political cultures in East Asia develop, and the healthcare experiences of low-income immigrants. She also co-edited The Handbook of Cultural Sociology (2010) and is working on the book’s second edition. 
This is Lo’s second time serving on an ASA section council. She served on the council of the Section on Comparative and Historical Sociology from 2008-2011.
