STAR's Podcast - Social Thought

Coming soon to Social Thought is our conversation with John Holmwood, president of the British Sociological Association, Professor of Sociology and Social Policy at the University of Nottingham, and co-founder of the Campaign for the Public University and Discover Society.  We talked about the 'neoliberal knowledge regime,' higher education in the U.K. and the future of sociology as a discipline.  Also, check out our latest discussions with Yale sociologist Margarita Mooney, Princeton sociologist Robert Wuthnow, and Salisbury University sociologist Alexander Stoner.  We are getting lots of hits!

 

Coming soon!

Themed around topics of inequality and resilience, Volume 33 will feature interviews with Lane Kenworthy and Mary C. Waters and an article on the intersection of religion and economic inequality, and will also feature an interview with Robert Wuthnow and research articles on ways people and communities remain resilient in response to adversity and social change.   Please visit our subscription page to reserve your copy.

Explore KU: The Bells of Mount Oread KU’s Campanile, a 120-foot-tall timepiece that tolls automatically on the hour and quarter-hour, not only sounded in the 2015 New Year at midnight with 12 mighty gongs, but also regularly rings up memories for many Jayhawks – the 277 faculty and students who gave their lives during World War II, the graduates who walk through its doors at commencement, and aspiring students who have strolled through the Lawrence campus. (See http://bit.ly/1xjjwJj). For nearly 60 years, KU’s 53-bell carillon has been tolling the sounds of peace and serenity across Mount Oread since it was installed in June 1955 inside the landmark World War II Memorial Campanile, which was dedicated in 1951. (See http://bit.ly/1BoL9jv) The carillon is also a four-octave musical instrument, which is played with a giant keyboard and foot pedals. University Carillonneur Elizabeth Egber-Berghout (http://bit.ly/14fiBPl), associate professor of carillon and organ, climbs 77 steps up a spiral staircase in the bell tower to perform recitals several times a month.
