It’s been a difficult summer and I’ve done my best to try to ensure that SocImages is contributing to the many important conversations we’ve had. I’m grateful for the many guest bloggers who have helped. I’ll summarize the relevant posts here, throwing in June as well since I missed that month’s update.

Sociological perspectives on this summer’s current events:


The Republican race

The Democratic race

Gun control

The Orlando massacre

Black Lives Matter

Brock Turner’s sentence for sexual assault
