What's New in the Sociology Department

March 30, 2017

It is a great pleasure to write to you as interim chair of Sociology, as I fill in for Sarah Babb, who is on sabbatical this semester. This was another exciting and productive year for the Sociology Department! I hope you enjoy a look at some of the highlights:

In other news, this year we welcomed two new members to the department, Andrew Jorgenson and Wen Fan. Andrew works on global inequality, greenhouse gas emissions, and the relationship between well-being and resource use. Wen, a sociologist of health, uses "natural experiments" to see how major social changes affect health outcomes. In December, we hired Julia Chuang, who will join us this fall.

If you want to help us do more of the wonderful work being done by Sociology students and faculty, you can participate here.

Please be in touch, and let us know what you are doing.


Juliet Schor
Chair, Sociology Department
