Sociology Department Grad Student Wiki

— powered by the Diversity Committee

Welcome to the soc grad student wiki! This wiki is a space where we can pool and share all sorts of information useful to grad students.

Are you looking for funding opportunities? A summer job or an RAship? Could you do with some hints and resources from your fellow TAs? Or maybe you have an apartment that's dying to be subleased? Have a pricey stats book that needs re-selling? Look no further… you've come to the right place!

So here's how it works. . .

  1. Visit our community wiki often for tons of useful information.
  2. Edit or Create a wiki page when you have useful information to share. Include text, image and video files as well as links to external sites. Don't just email the socgrad listserv, include the information here. Our wiki makes categorizing, finding and adding information easy, by avoiding email clutter.
  3. Have questions for other students? Create a discussion thread to which others can reply quickly.
  4. Spread the word. When you land that awesome RAship, tell others how you heard of it here first!
  5. :?: Questions? Check out Wiki 101 or Email wiki help.
  6. Test your wiki skills using our Playground

Social Problems


  • Helicopter Parents in the Hospital by Danielle Koonce
    How far can parents go when advocating for their sick child? Better yet, how far will doctors allow them to go?
  • Swedish Parents Get the Interview by Lucia Lykke
    Research typically finds evidence for a “fatherhood premium” and a “motherhood penalty”: parenthood is good for fathers’ earnings and reduces mothers’ earnings. However, studies directly testing employer discrimination are few and inconclusive in their results.
  • Fewer Kids, More Equality by Carrie Clarady
    An across-the-board decrease in larger families might be a net gain for child outcomes—and its pronounced change among disadvantaged families might help reduce American inequality.
  • Health, Now and Later by Justin Maietta
    What is the relationship between diabetes and personality?
  • Of Porn and Prayer by Brittany Dernberger
    Is the rise in pornography consumption reducing religiosity?
