2015 DCSS Banquet Slideshow

DCSS Annual Banquet

Each year, DCSS holds an Annual Banquet at one of the many wonderful dining and event venues in D.C.  This year, we will be returning to the glorious Busboys and Poets: 

2017 DCSS Annual Banquet

​Thursday, May 25, 2017
Busboys and Poets, 14th and V St NW
6:00 PM - 10:00 PM

See the delicious banquet menu below.

Please sign up by Friday, May 19th.

This year's main banquet event is a presentation by Michael Bader, sociology professor at American University. Professor Bader studies how cities and neighborhoods have evolved since the height of the Civil Rights Movement. He links long-term patterns of neighborhood racial change to the ways that race and class influence the housing search process. He has developed methodological tools that combine survey data with “big data” to study neighborhood environments. His presentation will highlight the ways that sociology enlightens us about our own city, Washington, DC. We will also honor sociologists in our awards ceremony, as well as drink and eat together, socializing as only sociologists do.

You can register for the banquet and pay for your DCSS membership either online by credit card or by check (see address to the right). If you have any questions about your membership status, feel free to contact Wilbur Hadden, DCSS Treasurer, If you have any questions about the website or online registration, feel free to contact Johanna Bockman, DCSS webmaster,

The banquet is a great way to network with faculty and students from DC area colleges and universities, as well as the many DC sociologists working outside academia. The evening is always great fun.
