Congratulations to Our New Minority Fellows! Announcing MFP Cohort 45
ASA is pleased to introduce seven new scholars who form Minority Fellowship Program (MFP) Cohort 45. These talented PhD candidates with strong and diverse sociological research interests were chosen from a highly competitive pool of applicants.
Coming to the pilot program for Wiki Education's Wikipedia Fellows, it's safe to say that we three sociologists did not have a particularly high regard for Wikipedia. We believed that Wikipedia is anything but scholarly and contains unreliable and often inaccurate information. We often prohibit students from citing Wikipedia as a source in their course work. In department meetings and among other sociologists at conferences, we have been known to snicker and scoff about Wikipedia.
