Spring 2017

The SJSU College of Social Sciences Dean’s Spring 2017 Graduate Student Colloquium was held on Wednesday, April 26, 2017 from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm. Presentations by five graduate students—Bill Chapin, Dana Huang, Jeffrey Greger, Rachael Cole, and Tara Caughlan—represented the wide range of inquiries that social scientists pursue: ethical alternatives to risky high interest payday loans; impact of parking requirements on housing affordability; political participation among women in the Evangelical church; how movies and books bring our attention to the environment and shape our world; and people’s attitudes toward rent control policies.
