Sign up here to present at our monthly "virtual coffee hours" or here to meet one random problem-solving sociologist every month (both run by Michael Soto of the University of Minnesota). There are also reading groups and a Facebook group (run by Theresa Beardall of Virginia Tech), and we hold annual dissertation proposal development workshops for graduate students (see the call for applications, deadline January 15). And see here for advice on running a problem-solving workshop at your university.
Look out for a book on problem solving sociology forthcoming from Oxford University Press in 2021!
