    • Students in the Department of Sociology use ethnographic, historical, and interpretive inquiry to explore significant social issues in local, national, and transnational contexts. By combining theory with critical engagement, our students’ ideas help shape the modern world and engage academic communities around the globe.

      Recently, their pioneering work has covered topics such as:

      • Responses to the reclaiming of Jewish communal property in Poland
      • Poverty and moral life at a Taiwanese Christian church
      • Market manipulation in the global coffee market
      • Regulation at sensual freedom
      • Marriage hunting in Japan
      • Corruption and the economy of political communication in U.S. Supreme Court discourse
  • Take The Next Step
