Sociology aims to explain the connection between structures and individual’s lives. We will begin by focusing on identities and inequalities and then explore how people interact with institutions such as the media and the state. Throughout the course, we will work to use the sociological imagination to connect the course material to current issues. Materials range from classical sociological theory to popular media. Special attention will be paid to race, gender, and class throughout the course. Syllabus and requirements will be discussed at the first session. Unless the instructor is notified of extenuating circumstances, attendance at first session is mandatory.
