Week 4 in the world of UW Sociology


Happy Monday everyone! I hope you’ve all managed to find your way to campus in the dense fog that has descended on the area. Keep your eyes peeled – between Halloween next week and the fog’s ambient creepiness, I’m going to be on high alert that I don’t accidentally stumble into a horror movie.

Here are a few things to keep in mind as you do your best to survive (Halloween humor) another week:

This Week in the Career Center. Don’t miss our weekly events in the Career Center post! This week includes the Data Science Career Fair, workshops on searching for internships and jobs, as well as events designed for Husky Veterans (graduate school) and for International Students (internships)

UW Sociology in the News – and at the Washington Supreme Court. As some of you may know, last week, the Washington Supreme Court held capital punishment violates the state constitution “because it is imposed in an arbitrary and racially biased manner.” The work of UW Sociologists Prof. Katherine Beckett and Dr. Heather Evans was critical to the Court’s decision and was subject to withering critique by state attorneys. Check back later this week for our post on this remarkable contribution by some of our star Sociologists!
