Melissa Brown, SOCY PhD Candidate, was interviewed by Inside Higher Ed during the ASA Annual Meeting in Montreal. The article, "Teaching Sociology in 2017" addresses how sociology professors are "teaching in the political now." In other words, how are sociologists helping students learn to make sense of the current events.
During the interview, Brown discussed the black social movements class she helped co-design and co-teach with Dr. Patricia Hill Collins. In this class, students were encouraged to use Twitter to discuss current events.
