Happy Friday, Sociologists! This will be our last #FridayRoundup for Volume 2. When we we return in two weeks, we’ll also be returning to a weekly posting schedule. In the meantime, enjoy a short selection of what we’ve been reading the last few weeks.
Chris is Assistant Professor of Sociology at Saint Louis University and provides technical expertise for keeping WIP up and running. Chris is currently working on a book manuscript, provisionally titled Medicine at the Margins, that looks at how the Emergency Medical Services system functions as a critical, and under-acknowledged, element of the society safety-net for the urban poor. He is also doing work on the relationship of systematic street closures in St. Louis, Missouri to urban disorder, crime, and other social problems.
Happy Friday, sociologists! Friday Roundups have been few and far between this semester, but we’re on summer time now and we’ll be ramping them back up. Here are a few of the things we’ve been watching and reading over the past few weeks.
Happy Friday, Sociologists! We’ve been on hiatus for about a month while we took some time off and launched our new site. We hope you’re enjoying the new look, and that your semesters, if you are a student or a faculty member, are off to excellent starts. We have a lot of links built up from the last few weeks, and a moving video up top from the New York Times about gender, parenting, and transiting. We hope you enjoy!
