Collaborative Research

Student-faculty research collaboration goes hand in hand with faculty research collaboration here at UAlbany's sociology department.

Anyone who looks at the faculty CVs will see how often faculty members co-author articles or books. The same is often true for students, both while they are studying here and after they finish their degrees. Below is a partial list of articles published during the last decade with UAlbany student-faculty co-authors. The student's name (or names) is in boldface in each entry. For the most part, the other authors are current or past faculty members in the department.
