Hello! This week we’ve got social science research on gendered and racialized hierarchies of intelligence in classrooms, the rise of online dating, and life course and the gender wage gap. We’ve also got one more reason to major in sociology: data science! Sociological Images explains why sociologists are well-positioned for data science careers.


Teaching the Gender and Race of Brilliance,” by Jean Marie Maier. New research in American Sociological Review finds that teachers’ responses to talking out of turn create a gendered and racialized hierarchy of intelligence in the classroom.


Online Dating Going Strong,” by Neeraj Rajasekar. The Atlantic talks with sociologists, Michael Rosenfeld and Jessica Carbino, about the continued rise of online dating.
