Distinguished Visiting Scholar Series

Sociology Department

From 2003 to 2013, the Robert and Risa Lavizzo-Mourey Distinguished Visiting Scholars Series brought leading sociological scholars to the Boston College campus for a period of residency. During their stay, each scholar delivered a major public lecture, taught one session of an intensive faculty/graduate student seminar, and was available for informal conversation with students and faculty. This provided a unique opportunity for members of the BC Sociology Department to dialogue and develop relations with a wide variety of important sociologists. The DVSS was funded by a generous gift from Robert and Risa Lavizzo-Mourey.
