EPISCOPALIAN (AND OTHER) SOCIOLOGISTS….Fortunately for my friend Ed Kilgore, who yesterday expressed “an overpowering urge to attend the next major conference of sociologists within commuting distance to seek out its Episcopalian subgroup,” the Eastern Sociological Society’s annual conference is going on right this very moment in downtown D.C. If you’re just learning about it now, then you missed this morning’s panel on blogging and public policy, starring Crooked Timber’s Eszter Hargittai and Henry Farrell, as well as yours truly. But don’t fret, Ed–you can still make it for tomorrow’s noontime session on political writing. I’m just guessing here, but I think it’s a pretty good bet that with both Garance Franke-Rute and me on the panel, we’ll address the question du jour: Where are all the women? For those three other people out there who have ever felt an overpowering urge to attend a regional sociological conference, you can find us (and fellow panelists Ramesh Ponnuru, Noam Scheiber, and Chris Suellentrop) at the Wyndham Washington Hotel at noon on Saturday.
