Department of Sociology Colloquium Series

For over 30 years, the Department of Sociology has run a biweekly Colloquium Series, the longest such series on the UC campus. The Colloquium Series features speakers from the department, from other related departments such as Anthropology, Criminal Justice, History, and Political Science, as well as a variety of regionally- and nationally-renowned universities. Since 2006, one session has been devoted to graduate student research. Students have presented their research in front of faculty, fellow students, and prospective students.  Additionally, the Colloquium Series includes a yearly visit from a nationally-renowned sociologist, sponsored by funds from the Charles Phelps Taft Research Center.


Colloquium Series lectures will be held at 3:00 PM at the Taft Research Center, Edwards 1, unless otherwise noted.

Kunz Center Events

The Kunz Center for Social Research has a two-fold mission: 1) support Center faculty and student research, and 2) develop research-related relationships with community organizations. While the Center supports a wide range of research, its activities emphasize the areas of 1) Urban and Race, 2) Family and Gender, and 3) Health. The Center organizes workshops in these research areas, awards small grants for research activities, and provides staff support for the submission of grant proposals. The Center was established in 1989 and endowed in 1995 by a bequest in honor and memory of Margaret A. Kunz and her parents, Dr. John C. Kunz and Emma B. Kunz.
