We are all very excited for you and hope you keep in touch with the department. For those of you who are not yet graduating, I encourage you to take advantage of our summer course offerings. Both CJ and SOC faculty are offering a number of courses, including the ever so popular Sociology of Harry Potter with Dr. Maätita. We will also be offering several other courses including online options! Next year a new professor will be joining the department: (soon to be) Dr. Kiana Cox. She s a SIUE alum, and we are so glad to have her back at the university as a faculty member! Among other sociology courses, she will be teaching statistics. I hope you enjoy this issue of Insight.

3 The Criminal Justice Club is an educational organization for students interested in Criminal Justice. We take part in tutoring each other and working out in past years for Police Officer Tests. Members are not all Criminal Justice majors and we accept anyone who seems like they are interested. This school year we added a new activity in which we went to the Winchester Gun Range. The members were excited and setting up this event was a very interesting task. We have also had different guest speakers in the past such as Police officers, Forensic computer specialists, and educators who teach Criminal Justice daily. Currently, we are planning a trivia night, along with the Sociology and Geography Clubs for the C. Kenneth Anderson Memorial Award Scholarship. This will be the first year having this event in a very long time and we are just as excited as everyone else. This semester the club will take our annual trip to the Greenville State Prison for a tour. The members make the club and without them there would be no Criminal Justice Club, so we are very happy to have the students that we do. (From Renee Gardner the President of the Criminal Justice Club) Look for the club on Facebook! The Sociology Club is a campus Join a Club! organization for anyone interested in Sociology. We are just getting the club started up again this year after several years with in inactive Soc. club on campus, and it has been an exciting beginning. Last semester, we held an ice cream social and a bake sale. This semester, we ve started up bi-weekly meetings and are currently planning a Trivia Night (March 22) along with the Criminal Justice Club and Geography Club. Proceeds from the event will go towards the C. Kenneth Anderson Memorial Award Scholarship, which supports a high-achieving student in one of those three fields. Also be on the lookout for our witty Sociology club T-shirts, coming soon! Our hope in the remaining semester is to continue growing in our involvement on campus and to build connections with new students who are interested in Sociology. (From Caleb Butler the President of the Sociology Club) Look for the club on Facebook!

4 Student Spotlight 1. What is your major? I am majoring in Sociology and minoring in Criminal Justice and Anthropology 2. Where were you born? I was born in New York City, New York 3. What is your favorite SIUE course? I think my favorite course I have taken was with Dr. Kauzlarich, Survey of Theories. People tend to laugh at me when I say that, but I found the class to be quite remarkable. I absolutely loved learning about the different theories, my favorite being Social Learning Theory :) 4. What do you love most about SIUE? I think the reason I fell in love with SIUE was not only for the nature/green campus, but the Andrea Fyffe strong aspect of diversity. There are people so remarkably different from every where you turn. I enjoy meeting new people that come from a culture different from my mine. It is really great to learn about new people everyday! 5. What do you know now that you wished you knew when you first came to SIUE? I wish I would have gotten involved on campus more. Now that I am a senior, I try to involve myself in as much as possible. When I first got to SIUE I didn't even know about sociology, and I took Intro to Sociology with Professor Stygar and fell in love with it. I always recommend a class with her, she is an amazing professor! 6. What is your favorite restaurant? I love going to Olive Garden. Their soup and breadsticks are awesome!! 7. What s after graduation? Where and in what position do you hope to be working? After I graduate in December, I am applying for graduate programs for Criminology. I am also looking at working as a probation office while I go through graduate school. Further than that, I have no idea :) 8. Anything else you d like to share with research of our newsletter? SIUE has been really great for me. I have learned about new cultures and people and opened my mind to a whole new way of thinking. There are so many opportunities to get involved on campus so I strongly suggest it! Start by joining our Sociology Club!!!

5 Meet Student Worker Logan Frymire 1. What is your major? My major is history with a minor in anthropology. 2. How long have you been a student worker in the department? I ve worked here since fall What do you love most about SIUE? The layout of the campus, it doesn t feel overcrowded. 4. What is your favorite food? Pepperoni and sausage pizza. 5. What is your favorite movie? Nightmare Before Christmas. 6. Do you have any pets? I have 3 cats, a black lab, and 2 Pomeranians at home. 7. What's the best thing about working in the Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice Studies? The people, everyone is nice and they have a great sense of humor. 8. What s your favorite ice cream flavor? Vanilla. 9. Where were you born? Mt. Vernon, IL. 10.If you could have any super hero power you wanted, which one would you choose? Why? Teleportation, I could go anywhere in the world without having to waste time traveling.

6 Graduate Student Showcase: Debbie Nelson I am very excited about working on my Master s degree in Sociology here at SIUE. The students and faculty provide the kind of progressive community that will prove instrumental in my academic pursuits. My background is English Literature, and my writing has already been an asset to me in sociology. I obtained my BA from Kennesaw State University outside Atlanta, GA, in Since my graduation, I have worked in several industries, including 6 years served in the travel sector, working in management for nationwide car rental company. Although these experiences were beneficial, I always felt unfulfilled, and I hoped to one day return to school to pursue an academic career. While taking time off to raise my children, I relocated to the St. Louis area with my partner. I have a strong interest in natural birth philosophies, and I became a trained birth doula. I am currently working on my certification, pending attendance at one more birth in early summer I also began taking classes at a local community college to work on other certifications. It was there I was first introduced to sociology, and realized the strength of my own sociological imagination that was present through all of my life experiences. Since the onset of my exposure to sociology, I have been dedicated to my current path. Balancing home life and studies is sometimes a challenge. I am also enjoying work as Supplemental Instruction (SI) Leader, helping SOC 302 students navigate their way through Methods. I hope this experience will aid me in a TA position with the Sociology department in the fall. In addition, I am serving as the Sociology Club Treasurer, and looking forward some great upcoming events. Last but not least, I am a runner, and I am training through the relentless winter, in preparation to run the Go! St. Louis half-marathon in several weeks.

7 Get t o know Dr. Ann Dirks -Linhor st Where did you grow up? I grew up in Grandview, MO, just outside of Kansas City, MO Where did you do your graduate studies? I obtained my law degree at University of Missouri Kansas City, and my MA and PhD at University of Missouri St Louis. What year did you begin your career at SIUE? Favorite vacation spot? Definitely Yellowstone National Park (both summer and winter), but a close second is Gulf Shores AL. Do you have any children? I have 4 stepsons (one of whom is a police officer), and 8 grandchildren. What is your favorite book? To Kill a Mockingbird is my favorite book. Are you a PC or Mac person? I'm a PC person. Favorite time of the year? I love Fall! Who or what most recently inspired you? There was a pilot at the end of WWII who was taking part in the drop of supplies in Berlin when people were starving etc., who began to collect chocolate for the children who watched the airplanes take off - that one gesture picked up interest until all pilots were contributing, and then all military personnel, and then people in the US and corporate sponsors. It's a great reminder that one person can make a difference with kindness. I still think that's true even though some people scoff at the notion. What s your favorite type of cuisine? Anything without high fructose corn syrup! :-) An Online Class? Our department is offering MANY online classes this summer: Intro to Criminal Justice (with Dr. Oberweis), CJ Supervised Internship (with Dr. Oberweis) Ethics in Criminal Justice System (with Dr. Dirks-Linhorst), Critical Issues in Policing (with Dr. Petrocelli), Intro to Sociology (with Dr. Kauzlarich), Everyday Sociology (with Dr. Davis), and Sexualities and Society (with Dr. Davis). Register EARLY to reserve your space in one of these online classes, or if you prefer, check out some of the other traditional face-to-face classes being offered this summer including the Sociology of Harry Potter (with Dr. Maätita )

8 Two of our graduate students presented papers at the Georgia Sociological Association. Samara Chapple's paper was title Controlling Images: An Analysis of Mammies, Jezebels, and Tragic Mulattos, in Lee Daniel s The Butler (2013). Jason Chatman s paper was titled, Men & Masculinity as Portrayed in Lee Daniel s Film The Butler, versus Characterizations of Men & Masculinity Today. See picture on the right. Dr. Erin Murphy recently had her paper Few Generations: Debating Race, Colonial Development, and Independence in the U.S. Colonial Field accepted for publication in Critical Sociology. Dr. Erin Heil (with Dr. Andrea Nichols) is writing her second book (under contract with Carolina Academic Press). It is tentatively titled Human Trafficking in the Midwest: A Case Study of St. Louis and the Metropolitan Area. She is pictured on the right with her coauthor.

9 Dr. Georgiann Davis recently coauthored a piece at Advocate.com title Hey Fox News, Intersex Is Not a Punchline. She will also be presenting a paper titled Their Bodies, Their Voices: Children with Intersex Traits at the annual meetings of the Midwest Sociological Society. Dr. Connie Frey-Spurlock (and colleagues) will be presenting a paper titled Engaging Faculty in Sustainability. Dr. Ann Dirks-Linhorst delivered a presentation titled Mentally Ill Offenders and the Criminal Justice System: What Do We Know, and How Do We Help? See picture on the right. Dr. Marv Finkelstein s paper, Making Sociology Work: Applying Sociology to the Workplace, has been accepted for presentation by the section on Sociological Practice and Public Sociology, at the annual meetings of the American Sociological Associate, August 16-19, in San Francisco, CA.

Although my time at SIUE is coming to an end, I know my SIUE memories will forever stay with me. Next academic year I will be joining the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. While I m very excited about this new opportunity, I will deeply miss all that SIUE has to offer (even the Geese!). Keep in touch, Dr. Davis *This newsletter was edited by Dr. Davis.
