Departmental Seminar

Sociology Department

Throughout the academic year, the Sociology Department hosts a seminar series featuring research work by our faculty, our advanced Ph.D. students, and by other prominent scholars in the field. This page contains the seminars held in the academic year 2014-2015. If you are interested in attending a seminar, please email sociology@bc.edu in advance.

The Sociology Seminar Series is supported by a generous grant from the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.
