The Clifford C. Clogg Memorial Lecture in Sociology and Statistics honors the late Clifford C. Clogg, a distinguished professor of sociology and professor of statistics at Penn State from 1979 to 1995. The lecture series was created in 1996, when funds contributed by colleagues and friends were used to establish an endowment for its support.
The keynote speaker for the Memorial Lecture was Stephen E. Fienberg. His lecture was entitled,
Reflections on Latent-Class Modeling. Dr. Fienberg is currently the Maurice Falk University Professor of Statistics and Social Science at Carnegie Mellon University, with appointments in the
Department of Statistics, the Machine Learning Department, and Cylab. He has served as Dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at Carnegie Mellon and as Vice President for Academic Affairs at York University, as well as on the faculties of the University of Chicago and the University of Minnesota.
Alexandra Slavkovic, Assistant Professor of Statistics, introduced the keynote speaker.
