"The Authors' Attic" is an installment of "Social Problems" -- the official journal of the Society for the Study of Social Problems. It is a forum that provides authors an opportunity to discuss pressing and relevant social issues of our time.
The mission of the Department of Sociology/Anthropology is to promote a critically engaged observation and understanding of society and culture. Our students will develop skills to explore societal issues through theoretical, cross-cultural, and methodological approaches. To reach such goals, faculty are committed to learning-centered teaching, meaningful research, social advocacy, and service in and beyond the community.
