Social Science Research Group

The Social Science Research Group (SSRG) is a forum for faculty and students to share and receive critical feedback on their research in the social sciences. Participants will meet to engage in a scholarly dialogue about the presenter's research with the goal of advancing the project.

The seminar will provide a valuable learning opportunity for students working on a senior thesis or considering graduate school. The SSRG will engage faculty and students in an ongoing intellectual dialogue to improve individual research inquiry and the collective academic pursuits of the Stonehill College community.


  • Presenters should and be prepared to spend approximately 20 minutes discussing their research.
  • Participants in the SSRG should read the paper and engage the presenter for approximately 30 minutes in Q&A.
  • Papers will be posted on the SSRG Resources page of this website in advance of each week's meeting.
