Congratulations to our amazing graduate students Tenshi Kawashima, Kiley Smith, and Yue Zhang for the awards they received at ASA back in August!

In a new publication, Assistant Professor of Sociology Vanessa Gonlin and Camryn Cobb, a UGA grad student in Financial Planning, Housing, and Consumer Economics connect personal and perceived group level discrimination to linked fate.

Drs. Sarah Shannon and Diana Graizbord have launched First Publics, a space intended for critical reflection as well as a useful resource for sociology instructors across higher ed institution types and teaching roles as well as contexts outside of the US.

In the past, researchers have lacked information and statistics regarding incarceration rates in rural jails. After noticing an increase in incarceration rates in these local jails, a team of UGA researchers got together to find out causes behind the arrests.  

The Department of Sociology is proud to announce that Dr. Dawn Robinson received the 2023 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Sociology of Emotions Section of the American Sociological Association at their annual meetings in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
