CALL FOR PROPOSALS The American Sociological Association: Research on Effects of Campus Carry. Since 2004, 10 states have passed laws allowing concealed handguns on college campuses in some form or another, and in 2014 alone 14 states submitted similar legislation. Such legislation can potentially have great impact on sociologists and their work. As such, ASA is accepting proposals for research to study the possible effects of guns in classrooms. Awards of up to $8,000 are available to ASA members who have PhDs. Deadline is July 31. For more information: http://www.asanet.org/career-center/grants-and-fellowships/campus-carry.
