Graduate student Sam Stabler was elected to the American Sociological Association’s section on Altruism Morality and Social Solidarity’s council. There he will serve as a student representative. Stabler commented “My dissertation focuses on the links between religion and the development of political space in New England’s Puritan missionary institutions and its early modern frontiers. In turn, my research is concerned with how actors transform moral landscapes into material ones. I have also been working on a project, with Shai Dromi, concerned with the moral implications of routine sociological debate. This work has been motivated by the rich discussion about morality that has animated the department’s various centers (notably, CCS, CRW, and Gorski’s CR Network) during my stay.”
Congratulations on this huge achievement Sam!
