This summer’s news has been dominated by discussions of policing and public health.

We found that sociology departments frequently have concentrations within their degree programs that prepare students to answer exactly these questions.
The official term for the new editor (or co-editors) will commence in January 2022 (the editorial transition will begin in summer 2021) and is for a minimum of three years (through December 2024), with a possible extension of up to an additional two years.

I am excited to introduce Drs. Jody Clay-Warner, Dawn T. Robinson, and Justine Tinkler as the new editors of Social Psychology Quarterly. I have known all three of these scholars since they were graduate students. All three have been active in the Social Psychology section of the American Sociological Association. As graduate students and throughout their careers, they have absolutely shone by the questions they asked, the answers they proffered, and the enthusiasm they radiated.
