Description

Economic sociology is an approach to the study of economic phenomena based on the notion that economic action is social action and that economic institutions are socially constructed and culturally and historically specific. This class is the core course for the Economic Sociology and Organizations program in the Department of Sociology. The course will introduce students to the key issues in the field. Topics include classical and neoclassical economic models of human action and sociological alternatives, including those of Marx, Durkheim, Weber, and Polanyi; analyses of the relationship between moral and economic life; sociological analyses of production, labor, and financial markets; performativity theory; and the role of economic institutions in the larger society, including their relations with political, cultural, and ideological spheres.
