Association of Black Sexologists and Clinicians

The Association of Black Sexologists and Clinicians is an interdisciplinary professional organization dedicated to improving the sexual expression and lives of persons of African descent. The organization was formed out of a need to formally address the intersection of race and sexuality through research, clinical practice, and social discourse.

The organization is comprised of sociologists, social workers, psychologists, professional counselors, mental health practitioners and coaches, clergy members, marriage and family counselors and therapists, family planning specialists and researchers, as well as students in various relevant professional disciplines.

The ABSC is affiliated with the Journal of Black Sexuality and Relationships.

Austrian Studies Association

Join the ASA by clicking the "Become a member" button below.

The Austrian Studies Association is devoted to scholarship on all aspects of Austrian, Austro-Hungarian, and Habsburg territory cultural life and history from the eighteenth century until today. All subscribers to its official journal, the Journal of Austrian Studies are members of the association.

The society was formerly known as the Modern Austrian Literature and Culture Association, but adopted new names for itself and its journal in 2011. These changes acknowledge what has long been the Association’s identity: an interdisciplinary organization that welcomes all eras and disciplines of Austrian studies at its conferences and in its journal, including scholarship on the cultures of Austria’s earlier political forms (the Holy Roman Empire, the Austrian Empire, and Austria-Hungary) and scholarship that acknowledges this region’s historical multiethnic, multilingual, and transcultural identities and their legacies in the present.

Discounted subscriptions/memberships are available for students, retirees, and those who are not currently employed.
