Sociologists so rarely get onto the Op-Ed pages of the NY Times--and when we do, its Dalton Conley, apparently so bitter about an ex-girlfriend who got an abortion against his wishes that he can't seriously grapple with the ethical issues he brings up. Steven Sherman

Re: Research on representations of men in baby magazines

Thanks to Andi Stepnick and Sister Edith Bogue for responding to my question about the representations of men in baby magazines. Here are their suggestions, for others who might be interested:
 
<<I haven't seen any research on representation outside of an old film on men's images (called Stale Roles and Tight Buns!).>> 
 
<<Tangentially relevant is the research that's been done of late on marketing to and for kids - Juliet Schor's book Born to Buy  and Susan Linn's Consuming Kids  come to mind.>>

Secondary major


We are trying to find a way to incorporate a concentration on  peace and
Justice into our curriculum. We considered helping students do this via a
double major, a concentration, or a minor.  Our provost told us that he had
heard of a college that allows a "secondary major" to do this sort of thing.
It is not a full major yet it is more than a minor or concentration. It can
be linked with a number of majors. 

Do any of your institutions have something like this?

student essay excerpt


As I was grading essay tests, I came across this gem:  "sociologists try to 
find the vague in the familiar".
Perhaps true for some!

Happy grading!
