Welcome

My name is Elena, I’m a fourth year undergraduate sociology student at McGill University. My main interests lie in communities, social network analysis and the impact of new technologies on social interaction, specifically related to the aging and the lifecourse. I spend a lot of time online and come across a wide variety of interesting articles. This is my curation of interesting socially-focused stories.

“The astronomer does not live in the remote galaxies, and the nuclear physicist can, outside his laboratory, eat and laugh and marry and vote without thinking about the insides of the atom. The geologist looks at rocks only at appropriate times, and the linguist speaks English with his wife. The sociologist lives in society, on the job and off it. His own life, inevitably, is part of his subject matter.”

-Peter L. Berger, An Introduction to Sociology. A Humanistic Perspective (1963).
