Sociology has several new faculty this fall

The Department of Sociology welcomes several new faculty this fall, including Dr. Latrica Best, who becomes full-time in Sociology after serving a joint appointment with Sociology and Pan African Studies since she arrived in 2010.  Dr. Carson Byrd moves to Sociology from Pan African Studies, where he has been since 2013, and Dr. Oliver Rollins joins the department after serving as a postdoc with the Penn Program on Race, Science & Society.  Additionally, Dr. Cynthia Ganote, who has served as an adjunct for us in the past, takes a one-year visiting assistant professor position with us for the upcoming year.  Please join us in welcoming these faculty to Sociology!
