The University of Toronto Sociology Working Papers are prepublication working papers reporting on current research by faculty members and graduate students in the tri-campus Sociology Department at the University of Toronto.
All of these papers have previously been presented at a conference or other professional meeting. They are posted here for the timely dissemination of research results. These papers have not undergone full peer review and may later appear in a somewhat different form in scholarly journals. We began the working paper series in 2016.
