smile a while for sara
after much agonizing over wonderful choices, sara wakefield has accepted a position at uc-irvine. i hope sara, randy, and riley take a little time to celebrate before jumping back into dissertationland.
aside from the weather, irvine seems like a perfect spot for a sociological criminologist. as native minnesotans, the wakefields must now acclimate to those harsh orange county winters.
i've worked with sara forever and i'll miss her a lot. but i'll save any serious g'byes for the dissertation defense this summer. we've got some fun collaborative work ahead too, including a research review for nij, some writing on parenting and crime, and our kitty forman -- the early years screenplay. congrats, sara.
