The Eastern Sociological Society is pleased to announce that Mary C. Waters, the M.E. Zukerman Professor of Sociology at Harvard University, has been named the 2014-15 Robin L. Williams, Jr. Lecturer. Sociology departments in the ESS region are eligible to host a visit by Professor Waters, who will lecture at two campuses in the Fall of 2015. Because of past Lecturer bookings that had to be suspended due to health reasons, Dr Waters is already committed to previously announced sites. Departments wishing to host a Robin Williams Lecturer in the future should keep an eye on this site after next spring’s conference. The ESS will cover travel expenses and honorarium, and the host department is asked to furnish food, lodging, and related expenses. A brief application process will be in place for those who want to apply then.
