Presenting theoretical work at ASA annual meeting - thoughts?

Recommended Posts

Greetings! I am an incoming second-year sociology PhD student. During Y1, I submitted a theoretical seminar paper for a full paper session at the ASA annual meeting (mostly just to practice writing abstracts) and, much to my surprise - it was accepted. The problem (aside from that it currently has no original research) is that the paper's arguments need a lot of fleshing out. I didn't have time to revise it by the deadline so, it is what it is. My question: how would one go about presenting such a paper? I know people generally present original research at conferences. I was thinking that I would primarily focus on one of several arguments and the direction I would *like* to take it. Any advice would be very much appreciated. I should note that I would eventually like to revise and publish this paper! Thanks in advance.
