Okay, so I didn't really like it when "declining significance of sociology" was the theme of the American Sociological Association meetings last year, even if "rising and" was tacked on to the front (and, yes, it felt and presumably was tacked on). Annual meetings of a discipline are, you know, supposed to imbue members with enthusiasm, not make them gloomy about their choice of careers.
This year, the subtitle of the ASA meetings is "Transgressing Boundaries." As I was just reminded by a fellow sociologist, this year is the tenth anniversary of the Alan Sokal's famous hoax, in which he published a paper that incorporated postmodern jargon and jibberish physics (apparently quite funny jibberish physics, if you know physics) in the cultural studies journal Social Text. The pre-colon title of that paper: "Transgressing the Boundaries."
