The Sociology of Education Association (SEA) is an informal group of scholars
and educators from both the fields of sociology and education, who meet annually
to engage in discussion of issues at the intersection of sociology and education.
SEA exists outside of the formal structure of any of the major professional
associations. To belong to SEA you do not need to be a member of ASA, AERA,
or any other organization.
Membership in the Sociology of Education Association (SEA) is included in the SEA Annual Conference registration fees.
Conference registration is open each October. Please click on '2015 conference' for more information. Membership dues entitle you to the
