AWARD NOMINATION CALL FOR ANECDOTES:
We mentioned earlier this month that sociologists Michael Kimmel and Abby Kinchy are nominating us for the American Sociological Association’s Distinguished Contributions to Teaching Award. The award is given to sociologists who have made “a significant impact on the manner in which sociology is taught at a regional, state, national, or international level.” Kimmel and Kinchy are seeking short anecdotes or testimonials from sociologists who have found Sociological Images to be useful in the classroom. We are so pleased at the response so far, and want to make one final, humble solicitation for such anecdotes. They can be emailed to Abby Kinchy (firstname.lastname@example.org) or added right here in the comments.
Thank you all again for making our blog so very rewarding for us both.
LOTS OF FUN NEWS:
The next essay in our ongoing feature in Contexts magazine, Skull Face and the Self-Fulfilling Stereotype, has been published (based on a previous post). If you’d like a copy of the essay, feel free to email us (email@example.com) and we’ll send it along. See the list of all of our Contexts essays here.
We are indebted to David Mayeda for writing a review of Sociological Images for Teaching Sociology. Thank you, Dr. Mayeda, for all your kind words!
We are super excited to report that the Ms. magazine blog has begun partially syndicating our work. If you’re a reader of their blog, you may have seen us pop up there already.
