Bridgewater State University

An Invitation

Sociology students from throughout New England gather together each spring to present their research at the New England Undergraduate Sociology Research Conference. The conference provides a supportive atmosphere for students to present their first professional paper.

The one-day conference is typically held in April on the campus of a New England college or university. The date and venue of the 2014 conference will be announced here.


If you are an undergraduate student interested in sociology, we welcome your participation. And if you have research that you would like to share, we invite you to submit a proposal for presentation.

Submitting a Paper for Presentation

Papers for presentation can come from class assignments, senior theses, capstone projects, or research specifically conducted for this conference. Proposals will be considered on any topic of sociological interest, and they may be for individual, group, or poster presentations. Or, you may submit a proposal for a panel—a set of 3-5 separate presentations on a similar theme that will be grouped together in a single session.

When the date and venue of the 2014 Conference are determined, the conference organizer will issue a Call for Participation. In addition to announcing the date and location, this CFP will include specific instructions on how to submit your proposal and how to register for the Conference. So, plan now to present your research in April!
