On Friday, 11 September 2009, the SSA is running the first colloquium of the new academic year. Our speaker will be Ananya Mukherjea, assistant professor of sociology and women’s/gender studies at The College of Staten Island. The title of her talk is “The Social Politics of Influenza: The Question of International, Inter-species, and Interpersonal Boundaries.” After her presentation, Ananya will take questions not only about the politics of the swine flu, but also about the transition from doctoral studies to a full-time faculty position.

After the colloquium, join your fellow students for a Mixer at Piano’s on the Lower East Side.

Further details about the Mixer and Ananya’s talk are in our flyer.
