Making the News

Sociologists have been in the news a lot lately. Andy Szasz got a lot of media attention for his study of environmental inequality in Santa Clara County. Coverage included CBS Radio News, Bay TV, KNTV in San Jose, KION-TV in Salinas, KSTS--the Spanish-language station in San Jose, KPFA Radio in Berkeley, and the Santa Clara Weekly. The Santa Cruz County Sentinel interviewed him, as did a reporter from the San Jose Mercury News--and even one from a Viennese newspaper.

And Dane Archer did an interview for ABC's 20/20 on interpersonal perception. He also fielded a call from Discovery Channel Online for a story they were preparing about facial attraction, pegged to an article that appeared in Nature.

Describing the fierce competition for rentals in Santa Cruz these days, history grad student Jane Garcia made a case for rent control in an op-ed published in the Santa Cruz County Sentinel.
