Fall 2021 Book Club

The book club will be held in a hybrid format on October 29, 2021, from 2:00-3:30pm and is open to everyone.

We will read the Socius Special Collection: Sociology’s Role in Responding to Inequality. Inequality scholars have contributed much to sociological research, but is it actually reducing inequality in our society? That is the question this special collection explores. It asks whether sociology, and the social sciences generally, have more to offer. Join us for a discussion of the potential ways this research can effect change and help efforts to address inequality.
