The Institute for Immigration Research (iir.gmu.edu) has been developing a GIS and statistical database in order to research immigration in the United States.  

The first product to come out of this database is the Immigrant State Fact Sheet Project (http://iir.gmu.edu/research/mapping-immigrant-population).  This project is an ongoing effort to map and analyze the economic contributions that immigrants provide to the US economy.  

Please check out the fact sheets we've created and take a moment to browse the Immigrant State Fact Sheet Research Brief (http://s3.amazonaws.com/chssweb/documents/14140/original/2013_State_Fact_Sheet_Brief_12.5.2013.pdf?1386263583).  We appreciate your interest!  And if you like it, please share it with your friends and contacts!

As I was searching Google+ for new additions to my circles I realized that there is no "Academic" section of Google+. There seems to be a heavy emphasis on entertainment and news media, and a lack of intellectual categories. As such, it may be useful to intellectuals and academics on Google+ to push for a category of their own. This would make networking and organizing much easier.

What are your thoughts?

We should try to get this post circulated further, or start an initiative.

This is a great post about public housing and income discrimination in the greater Washington D.C area. The author, Dr. Johanna Bockman, is a scholar of globalization, socialism, economic sociology at my doctoral institution, George Mason University. This is a must read for those of you interested in the sociology of space and inequality.

George Mason University's Public Sociology Association is holding its second annual Public Sociology Graduate Conference on October 20th, 2012 at the George Mason Fairfax Campus.

The CFP was released recently, and all graduate students in the social sciences and policy disciplines are welcome to apply. See my latest blog post for resources about the conference and the Public Sociology Association.

This is a great chance to become engaged with public sociology and a good excuse to check out Washington D.C!

Check out the newest post on Sociology for the People, discussing Michael Burawoy's "extended case method". This method blends positive and reflexive methods of observation in an attempt to combat the weaknesses of both approaches to science. Furthermore, its dialectical approach to sociological research makes it highly instrumental for public sociologists. As always, please provide feedback. Criticism is always appreciated.

I wanted to share this with my G+ friends - a colleague at the George Mason graduate school has co-founded a group called "Child Friendly Faith". Their mission is to expose and eliminate religiously motivated child abuse. Their group was recently covered by the Huffington Post - check out the article in the link below!

I think this will interest sociologists and academics in my circles. Dr. Cook is a prominent criminologist and public sociologist from the University of North Carolina Wilmington, and also serves as the President of the North Carolina Sociological Association. She's mapped out some crucial points in the debate surrounding the legitimacy of public sociology.
