Two Professors elected for Research Committees
Researchers at the Department of Sociology play active roles in international professional organizations. Two of the researchers at the department were elected to key positons during the World Congress of Sociology that took place in Toronto in July. Professor emerita Hedvig Ekerwald was elected as Vice President of the Research Committee on History of Sociology(RC-08) while Professor Sandra Torres was elected President of the Research Committee on Aging (RC-11). The department continues, in other words, to be put on the sociological map.
