The Sociology of Transgender Studies," discusses the lack of disciplinary boundaries, methodological strategies and consensus on the definition of "transgender." 

Dr. Ning Hsieh and Dr. Hui Liu published a paper in Demography, a top sociology journal in September 2019. The paper is titled "Bisexuality, Union Status, and Gender Composition of the Couple: Reexamining Marital Advantage in Health." 

Dr. Meredith L. Gore published a book in May 2017 titled "Conservation Criminology."

This important new text introduces conservation criminology as the interdisciplinary study of environmental exploitation and risks at the intersection of human and natural systems. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, the book enhances understanding of the various human and organizational behaviors that pose risks to the environment, humans, and drive conservation crime. As human population growth, global market economies, climate change, deforestation, and illegal exploitation of natural resources continue to increase, academic research from numerous disciplines is needed to address these challenges.
