In April grad student Kelly Nielsen had a chapter titled, “Beyond ‘Warming Up’ and ‘Cooling Out’: The Effects of Community College on a Diverse Group of Disadvantaged Young Women” published in a Routledge volume called Inequality, Power and School Success Case Studies on Racial Disparity and Opportunity in Education, edited by Gilberto Conchas and Michael Gottfried. Info on the book can be found at http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9781138837881/
Kelly has recently learned that a paper of his that was conditionally accepted in the first round of reviews has been accepted for publication in the journal Sociology of Education. The paper, titled, “’Fake It ‘Til You Make It’: Why Community College Students’ Aspirations ‘Hold Steady’” will be published in the October issue.
Both of these pieces are from his dissertation research. Congratulations Kelly!
The ASA Sociology of Education David Lee Stevenson Award has been given to UCSD Sociology Alum, Queenie Zhu for her paper titled, “On Common Ground: How Spatial Layout Facilitates Schools’ Power to Segregate Students.” Congratulations!
