A Few Words from the Editors
We would like to thank you all for the impressive submissions that we received this year. As always, UNH sociology students provided thought-provoking, well-written and enlightening pieces that we are eager to share. From research essays to literature reviews, each student had a unique interest and focal point, adding to the diversity of topics covered.
The wide-range of subjects covered in this year’s submissions reflects the wonderful, innately rich nature of sociology. Our world is full of sociological relevant issues; the good, the bad, and the controversial, can all be analyzed through a sociological lens. As such, these submissions are not only valuable contributions to the UNH community, but to the field of sociology, as well.
We would also like to extend a special thank you and congrats to all graduated seniors who submitted their work. Although your time at UNH has come to an end, your writing will live on forever.
Keep learning, keep theorizing, and keep being great. The future of sociology depends on great minds like you.
