Berna Turam, associate professor of sociology and international affairs and WGSS executive committee member, will release Gaining Freedoms: Claiming Space in Istanbul and Berlin (Stanford University Press) next month. Her research reveals that competing claims across groups within urban spaces can become platforms to defend freedom and rights from government encroachments.

Linda Blum, associate professor of sociology and WGSS affiliated faculty, examines the lives of mothers with children diagnosed with “invisible disabilities” in her latest book Raising Generation Rx: Mothering Kids with Invisible Disabilities in an Age of Inequality (NYU Press). The book, published this month, provides a groundbreaking study of these mothers’ experiences and the daunting social, economic, and political realities that they face.
