    On Saturday, August 10, 2013, USF Sociology student Damian Patrinostro presented “Exploring the Social Construction of a Zoo: Explicit vs. Implicit Functions and their Implications” at the annual meeting of the Society for the Study of Symbolic Interaction in New York City.   His paper originated with field work conducted as part of a Research Experience course.  Damian is also working on a paper on people’s interactions with zoo animals with his mentor, Dr. Chris Ponticelli.  Damian will graduate this semester and is working on applications for graduate school.

    Kat Poblete, who graduated with highest honors this past summer, will present a portion of her Sociology honor’s thesis at the annual meeting of the Mid-South Sociology Society in October, 2013.  In her paper, “The Conceptual and The Personal: Bridging the Gap in Emerging Alternative Food Initiatives,” Kat enhances the literature on the alternative food movement with in-depth interviews with people intimately involved in area movements. Kat’s research mentor for this project was Dr. Chris Ponticelli.

    Congratulations to Kat and Damian on their high academic achievements!
