S.T.E.W. Spring Schedule

Hey Folks,

The Social Theory and Evidence Workshop will return on Monday April 11 at the special time of 1:30 PM. The Department Colloquium will precede S.T.E.W. on that day so we invite you all to come do lunch with us straight after that event.

The remaining events will happen at the normal time of 12 Noon on select Mondays and a Wednesday in SS-302. S.T.E.W. is excited to be hosting four student papers and a professionalization seminar organized and led by graduate students. Below is the calendar and we truly hope that you can join us for good conversation and a great meal this Spring! As always, vegans and vegetarians are welcome at S.T.E.W.

Call for Papers–S.T.E.W. for May

Hello Folks,

The Social Theory and Evidence Workshop has additional presenter slots open. For the month of May, S.T.E.W. would like to host student at earlier stages of completed work, such as recently submitted qualifying papers and/or early drafts of research proposals in which a data collection strategy is needed. The attendees at S.T.E.W. are fantastic at these things and this is a great opportunity to get some expert critiques in advance of data collection or submitting a paper to peer review. Advanced students who wish to present papers are naturally encouraged to present at S.T.E.W. any time!

If you have a paper or proposal that you would like to workshop in May, please email me.

Thank you all for a rather successful S.T.E.W. quarter, and we will see you all in the Spring. I’ll provide the lunch!

Professors Martin (SOC), Monk (SOC), Muller (CHD) and García (SSA) at S.T.E.W.: Job Market Panel

Hello Folks,

The Social Theory and Evidence Workshop is wrapping up an awesome quarter with its final workshop of the quarter, the third professionalization seminar. On Monday, March 7 (at 12 Noon in SS-401) we will host a panel of sociologists from around the University to discuss strategies and preparation for entering the job market, featuring our very own John Levi Martin and Ellis Monk, CHD’s Anna Muller and SSA’s Angela S.

We are sure this panel will be very informative and a lot of fun, and as you all embark on Week 10 you deserve a bit of levity in your life. As always, S.T.E.W. will be doing lunch, catered by Nepal House in South Loop, so I hope you all can spare the time to hang with us!
