Not many updates here. I'm not dead, and haven't given up. Just nearing the end of second semester, so I've been quite busy.
I took three undergrads to the annual meetings of the Midwest Sociological Society in March, and they did a bang up job. One presentation covered the preliminary results of the 'Meth Lab'. Another presentation covered the structure and experience of undergraduate research teams, including both the Iceland project and the Meth Lab. One of the students presented her senior thesis, a qualitative analysis of international immigrant work teams at her hotel. I also touched base with some old mentors and friends in the discipline, which is always very nice.
I presented the progress on the Methamphetamine research to our client, the Evansville-Vanderburgh County Methamphetamine Demand Reduction Group last week. They were pleased with our work so far, and I gave them a tentative report date of June. At that time they are going to have a press conference anyway, and it would be nice to release our work to the public at that time.
And, we got one of our (allright Psych's) students into the Notre Dame Sociology PhD department next year. Good luck to her.
So, I've been busy doing all sorts of sociology, keeping me away from internet sociology. I will say more when time allows.
