The Graduate Student Council of Sociology (GSCS) is introducing a new event series: HOT TAKES. We will invite one faculty member each month to share their hot take on an aspect of academia with graduate students in our program.
The objective is two fold:
- For grad students to meet and network with faculty members, which may be particularly useful if you are looking for committee members or just want to get to know our professors.
- For grad students to learn how to thrive as a sociologist, beyond classroom-skills.
Dr. Guy Stecklov will share his hot take on collaboration on Wednesday, February 28 at 1pm in Lino Lounge. Why collaborate? How does it work? What are the costs and benefits of collaborating with junior or senior scholars?
Coffee will be provided! Please bring any questions you may have.
About Guy Stecklov
Guy’s research explores the link between social inequalities and violent conflict on demographic change. Initially focused on sub-Saharan Africa, his work has shifted to cover other geographic settings. The questions he asks are often motivated by an interest in methodological approaches, especially in the realm of social survey data collection, to enhance our comprehension of how quantitative research techniques shape our understanding of human behavior. In recent years, his attention has increasingly shifted towards historical studies on migration, assimilation, and reproductive evolution in North America. His latest project explores the impact of World War I on Canada’s social and demographic evolution during the early 20th Century.
