Egon Bittner Memorial
This year we welcomed our graduate students back to Brandeis at the picturesque Paine Estate.
The Graduate School of Arts and Science honored 22 of its teaching fellows at a reception May 6. Honorees were selected based on their overall teaching excellence, student and course instructor evaluations and letters from faculty. Three of the award recipients who were recognized at this year's TF Award Reception are from our graduate programs.
We congratulate each of them!
Sarah Kelley (Women and Gender Studies),
Vanessa Lopes Munoz (Sociology)

Carmen Sirianni elected to the distinguished National Academy of Public Administration.
Alison Better (PhD) has recently started a tenure track job as an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Kingsborough Community College in Brooklyn, which is part of the CUNY system.
Miranda Waggoner and Vanessa Munoz have been named 2010-2011 student co-editors of the ASA medical sociology section newsletter (link: http://www2.asanet.org/medicalsociology/). Miranda and Vanessa will contribute a thematic column to each of four newsletters during their term. They are actively soliciting input from graduate students interested in medical sociology, at Brandeis and other departments, especially regarding how students have benefited from being section members, student experiences navigating the job market, and what medical sociology resources graduate students are using in their research and teaching. We are all looking forward to Brandeis serving as the base for the medical sociology student column!
