Inequality Discussion Group
This biweekly* discussion group brings together Cornell faculty and graduate students from around campus to discuss and improve their in-progress research. Lunch is provided. Inequality Discussion Groups in Fall 2019 will be held on Tuesdays.
Graduate students: Please sign up for SOC 5190: Workshop on Inequality for the fall semester. This is the same as the CSI discussion group, but it will now be a 1-credit class, as it was in the 2016/2017 academic year. The “course” will be s/u, and little will change from the current discussion group structure. If you have any questions, please contact Kim Weeden.
Visiting Speakers included: Matthew Desmond, David Grusky, Adam Gamoran, John Hagan, Abigail Sewell, Leticia Saucedo, Markus Schafer, Sanyu Mojola, Aliya Saperstein, L’Heureux Lewis-McCoy, Kathy Edin, G. Cristina Mora, Peter Rich, S. Michael Gaddis, and Elissa Cohen ’12
