Sociology Graduate Students at the 2016 PAA in Washington DC

Sociology was well represented at the recent April 2016 Population Association of America Annual Meetings in Washington DC.   Eighteen graduate students participated in 27 different activities.  These included helping present in a pre-conference workshop, acting as discussants, presenting posters, and either being presenters or being part of papers presented in various sessions.  Truly a good showing for the Department and fine work by the students!

Below are the names of the graduate students (alphabetical listing) and their role and title of their work.
