UO Sociology Alumnus featured in Around the O newsletter

This week, Around the O’s email newsletter includes a UO Sociology alumnus!

Adam Markle (BA ’03) is an Emmy-winning cinematographer and documentary filmmaker whose latest film, 34 Seconds, is due to premiere this fall. He talked to Around the O about the importance of his background in sociology to his career today:

“My sociology courses taught me to look at the world from different perspectives and ask critical questions. What I learned at the university shaped the kind of stories I wanted to tell—and how I wanted to tell them.

“I produced a documentary about migrant farm workers in Southern Oregon, and I chose to make it 80 percent of my grade. I ended up spending 15 hours a day in the editing room—and realized I was enjoying it.”
