I am uncharacteristically excited about the work my students are putting into their blog, My Sociological Imagination.
…Oh, I hadn’t told you?
Yes, my Introduction to Sociology students (both sections) are writing a blog for the course. They have not been given any specific instructions about content beyond the grading guidelines (posted toward the bottom). So far, the students have addressed the work of one dissertation committee member, one co-author, and one future collaborator (fingers crossed). This is purely by accident, if by “accident” I mean, “I only know wicked smart people who do fantastic research.”
The blog is public, so I’m kind of begging you to head over there and comment on their ideas…especially those of you with expertise in the topics they have chosen. We still have lots of good stuff to come–gender, authority, education, religion, social movements–so I’ll probably post another reminder in the coming weeks. I may also hit you up individually for comments. You know, for the kids.
