The UCSD Sociology Department Graduate Student Workshop was held Friday May 18th. This year’s workshops included discussions related to theory, methods, and sociological sub-disciplines, as well as reflections on the past, present, and future of sociology and what makes something sociology (or not).
Throughout the workshop, participants had engaging and interactive discussions both with faculty from the sociology department and with other graduate students. Graduate students from all disciplines were welcome to participate in this year’s workshop as they discussed a variety of theoretical and methodological topics.
The organizing committee would like to thank all attendees for their participation in the graduate workshop, and looks forward to welcoming everyone back to next year’s workshop.
