Professor John Torpey has just been elected President Elect of the ESS-which means he will follow Barbara Katz Rothman, who will follow the current President, Nancy Foner. This is in addition to the other former ESS Presidents on our faculty: Cynthia Epstein, Richard Alba, Judith Lorber and Phil Kasinitz.

It is also worth noting that this comes at a time when the ASA President Elect, Ruth Milkman, is also on our faculty-our third ASA President in a decade (the others being Cynthia and Fran Piven).
