After months (and years) of preparation, I have decided to accept Yale's offer to join their Sociology department as a doctoral student. I'm thrilled! In addition to the many incredible scholars in the Yale community, I'm specifically looking forward to working with Julia Adams and Phil Gorski as I focus more on historical sociology, as well as with Jeff Alexander as I learn how to blend a cultural sociology into my work. The resources at Yale are so exciting, too, especially the Beinecke Rare Books and Manuscripts Library (pictured above), the many workshops each week, and the MacMillan Center's Religion, Politics and Society Initiative.
In a few months, we'll pack up and move to New Haven! I'll check back in then. Cheers to Yale, and hard work paying off!
