Please join us for our first meeting of the year on Friday, September 30th at the Buffett Institute Conference Room from 3:00-5:00PM. As usual, food and drinks will be provided.

Our speaker will be Rebecca Emigh, Professor of Sociology at the University of California, Los Angeles. She studies long-term processes of social change. Particularly, she is interested in how cultural, economic, and demographic factors intersect to create these processes of social change.This interest is reflected in two major projects: one on transitions to capitalisms and one on forms of information gathering. Her work uses historical perspectives and mixed methods to analyze the similarities and differences in these social phenomena in the past and present emphasizing in a "view from below". That is, how ordinary people affect social relations, and thus, the course of history.
