The year 2021 marks 20 years since September 11, 2001, a profoundly transformative moment. Join St. Lawrence University faculty, staff, and alumni guests for a full week of activities (Sept. 3-11) as our community reflects on the many ways both our national and global communities have been impacted.
Students studying sociology at St. Lawrence will examine the dynamics of the social world through a variety of areas of inquiry. These include: why societies develop, are maintained, and/or change; the socio-historical context of social phenomena; how race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, and other signifiers of "difference" affect structural arrangements and personal experience; and how social relations and processes operate at local, regional, national, and global levels.
Students have the opportunity to participate in community-based learning, off-campus study, internships, and independent research related to a variety of topics within sociology including social media, technology, health, aging, race, politics, development, migration, political economy, the environment, and food systems.
Faculty members put their knowledge into action so students and others are able to benefit from it. Recently, faculty members contributed to peer-reviewed journals, magazines, and anthologies, and coordinated international conferences.
This regular roundup features a selection of recent mentions of St. Lawrence University and its students, faculty, and staff in regional, national, and international media outlets.
