When the SOAN Department developed our new major in Sociology, we created a year-long seminar for students pursuing honors in the SOC major. This year I have the great privilege of working with seven Sociology students, who have been stuck with me since last August. Before Spring Break, we took a road trip to Baltimore for the 2018 meeting of the Eastern Sociological Society, a regional conference that brings together sociologists from throughout the eastern U.S. The students each created a poster about their thesis topics and participated in a poster presentation session at the ESS meetings on Friday, February 23. Each student shared the preliminary results of their work with attendees at the conference and had a chance to sit in on some of the other panels and lectures held at the meeting. Once back on campus, the honors crew did it all over again for a poster session held in the SOAN lounge on the fourth floor of Alumni Hall. Please stop by the lounge to see the results of their honors work!
Many thanks to Colgate’s Office of Undergraduate Research, the Office of the Dean and Provost of the Faculty, and the SOAN Department for support of our trip to Baltimore!
