Speaker: Adrianna Bagnall, Columbia University

This workshop series is primarily designed to assist advanced graduate students with their ongoing research projects. The workshop aims to expose participants to original approaches to social studies of science and technology, but also to expose students to solutions to common challenges of academic work. We aim to provide a supportive environment offering feedback and advice on all aspects of academic work, from devising and conducting research, to producing written texts of all kinds (grant applications, dissertation proposals and publications). Please contact the organizer, Larry Au, larry_au{at}, if you do not have a Columbia ID and would like to attend.

Adrianna Bagnall studied Special Education, Psychology, and Sociology in her undergraduate education at Seattle Pacific University where she cultivated an interest in disability policy. She completed her masters’ degree in Sociology at Columbia University in 2013. Her masters’ research focused on autism policy and local government organization around developmental disability in NYC. She is currently researching the historical development of services and policy for adults with developmental disability. Her methods include ethnographic observation, contemporary and historical interviews, and historical document analysis. She is also currently conducting research on the transition out of high school for youth in special education as a participant in the Disability Determination Process Small Grant Program for graduate level researchers.

This event is sponsored by the Department of Sociology at Columbia University.
