The Chicago Journal of Sociology is a student-led publication founded in 2014 by Professor James Evans and supported by the University Of Chicago Department of Sociology. Our mission is to showcase excellent undergraduate work in sociology, while giving student editors experience turning BA theses of exceptional quality into published academic articles. We value clear, straightforward prose, careful citation, and a wide range of methodological approaches, both quantitative and qualitative. Papers should be under 9,500 words, excluding notes, references, tables, and figures.

The Co-Executive Editors of Volume 6 (2020) are Bettina Hammer and Cora Alperin. The editorial team included: Evan Zhao, Solomon Dworkin, Hanna Batlan, Zoë Cullison-Shimada, Deblina Mukherjee, John Wu, Alisha Nadkarni, Gregory Wong, Jonah Norwitt, Mark Valadez, Caitlin Blankenship, and My Chu.
