This is a new project for us. We want to create a blog that will be maintained by USC professor Karen Sternheimer and four other contributors. The goal of this blog is to encourage students to explore sociology’s relevance to pop culture, meda, and everyday life. Karen and the four other contributors will each create a blog posting twice a month. We have not yet decided whether the blog will be open or closed to comments from the general public. There will be a launch page to the blog from the StudySpace and from the webvertising pages. The blog should have an RSS feed so that professors (and our own sociology student websites) can subscribe to it.
