Warm greetings from Bloomington!

On behalf of all of our colleagues in the Department of Sociology, we are delighted to present the fall 2019 department newsletter. The newsletter features stories about our new faculty, updates on faculty activities and awards, and our spring 2019 student awards. Whether you have been away for a long time or just a few years, we hope that these stories connect you back to your Bloomington friends.

As is our new practice, we will be in touch early in the spring to learn more about what all of you have been doing. We have heard from many of you who enjoy reading about friends and colleagues from your Bloomington years. Those of us still here in Bloomington eagerly anticipate these updates each year as well.

The strength of our department derives from our deep and abiding connections to each other: those still living in Bloomington and those who have carried the spirit of Indiana University Sociology to new locales. We hope that you enjoy the newsletter, and look forward to staying in touch!
