Letter from the Editresses by Beverly Pratt & Meg Austin Smith

Letter From the Editresses

Welcome to Volume 5, Issues 1 & 2!

This newsletter edition begins with greetings from our new Graduate Director – Dr. Bill Falk.  But we’ve also got loads of updates including:  new GSF election procedures, information on working groups, an announcement for a teaching support group, a list of journal rankings, and a few introductions to some new(-ish) faces around the department.

Graduate student contributions include sociological reflections on the Rally to Restore Sanity and an article regarding a growing graduate-student run teaching tool called The Sociological Cinema.

Finally, five individuals are spotlighted, including:  IT graduate assistant Nakul Sharma, undergraduate student Sean Gray, graduate students Joanna Kling and Lori Reeder, and faculty Dr. Meredith Kleykamp.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this edition.  Please enjoy the contributions of our colleagues and feel free to contact us with any comments and/or suggestions that you may have for future publications.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Beverly Pratt and Meg Austin Smith
