The 34th SouthEastern Undergraduate Sociology Symposium will welcome five Augusta University student presenters on Feb. 19-20. Co-sponsored by the Emory University Department of Sociology and the Morehouse College Department of Sociology, the two-day conference provided opportunities for students in multiple fields to present original research in a professional setting.
Contrary to its acronym, though, “SEUSS” is anything but idle fun. At the conference, students will present on a wide variety of topics, ranging from traditional studies of sociology and psychology to discussions about modern police practices.
The Department of Sociology, Criminal Justice, and Social Work sponsored the students’ trip.
Department Chair Kim Davies traveled with students to Emory alongside Dr. Todd Powell-Williams, assistant professor of sociology.
The five students representing Augusta are:
- Kathryn DelGenio, presenting “Public Space, Identity, and Marginalized Sexuality in Postwar Tokyo”
- Charles Kambouris, presenting “The Age of the Fox and the Lion in the Shadows”
- Thomas Brazelton, presenting “World Systems Analysis”
- Amber D. Greenaway, presenting “Regional Differences in Death Penalty Sentiment”
- Felisha Moore, presenting “Felonious Killings of Officers: Cross Regional Look”
