Two sociology faculty members elected officers for ASA

Two sociology faculty members were elected to national office in this Spring’s American Sociological Association (ASA) election.

Jessica Kelley-Moore was elected to the position of Chair-Elect of the Section on Aging and the Life Course. She will serve as Chair of the Section in 2016-2017. Jessica’s election to this important office continues a long tradition of Section leadership from CWRU faculty, several of whom have served as chair and in other leadership roles in the past.

Eva Kahana was elected to council of the Section on Disability in Society. This follows on her recent term as Chair of the Nominating Committee for the Section.

Congratulations, Jessica and Eva !
