Congratulations, Honours students!

Posted by SOSA Webteam on April 11, 2018 in News

April 11, 2018 was a long-awaited and exciting day for this year’s cohort of fifteen SOSA honours students, who presented their research projects at the Honours Reseach Symposium. Their presentations were organized into four thematic panels: “Making it Work: Passion and Precarity on the Job,” “Public and Private Lives,” “Navigating Boundaries in the University,” and “Media, Representation, and Identity.”

For Dr. Laura Eramian, who taught the honours seminar and supervised the 2017/18 honours cohort, the symposium was a fulfilling end to a productive and stimulating year. “It was such a pleasure to work with these students and to watch their projects unfold between September and April. Their research topics represent a wonderful breadth of what sociology and social anthropology have to offer. What strikes me about their projects is that they’re all engaged with current issues in the world, but are also grounded in many of the longstanding questions of our disciplines. I was also deeply impressed with the students’ collegiality, and their support for each other was inspiring to see.”

Congratulations to all of the honours students on a job well done!
