Contexts aims to make sociological research dynamic for and interesting to the educated lay reader. Drawing from sociology and its related fields, Contexts includes feature articles, photography, summaries of the latest social science research, news about the field, and book and culture reviews of today's provocative topics. Contributors challenge outdated ideas, stimulate creative thinking, and start lively debate. Contexts is available at University of Minnesota Bookstores, at www.contexts.org and select Barnes & Noble bookstores in the Twin Cities area. For more information, call Contexts Managing Editor Amy Johnson Conner at 612-624-0245 or amy@contexts.org. The first Minnesota issue features articles on the growing presence of religion and its study on college campuses, a study on the relationship between crime and immigration by Harvard University Sociology Professor Robert Sampson, America's hero worship of firefighters, and Disney's Ratatouille as a study in social hierarchy.
