The Sociologist

The Sociologist is the mouthpiece of DCSS. The Sociologist began as a newsletter for members of DCSS. Beginning in 2014, we transformed the newsletter into a periodic magazine of public sociology for a general audience.

The Sociologist is an open-access publication and is supported by DCSS. Our aim is to continue to foster our project as a meeting place for all sociologists in the Washington, DC area.

Our team members are all volunteers, including the editor, and feature writers and reporters who are graduate or undergraduate students. We are constantly looking for student reporters and writers to bring sociology to our public readers.

The Sociologist is issued periodically to coincide with our public events. Send us the sociology of your neighborhood, where you learn and work, or your playground.
