SOC 100. Principles of Sociology.

Introductory courses

Section 001.

Instructor(s): Karin A Martin (kamartin@umich.edu)

Prerequisites & Distribution: Open to first- and second-year students. Juniors are strongly encouraged to enroll in Soc. 300. Seniors must elect Soc. 300. No credit granted to those who have completed or are enrolled in Soc. 195 or 300 (or 400). No credit for seniors. (4). (SS). May not be included in a concentration plan. (Introductory course).

C. Wright Mills once wrote, "The sociological imagination enables us to grasp history and biography and the relations between the two within society. That is its task and promise. To recognize this task and this promise is the mark of the classical social analysis." As a general introduction to sociology this course seeks to fulfill that promise. Through readings, lectures, and discussions, you will develop a working understanding of the concepts and phenomena of interest to sociologists and social scientists in general. The subjects researched by sociologists overlap in large part with those studied by economists, political scientists, and psychologists. These subjects include, for example, the role of social relations and culture in forming personality, and the importance of institutions and organizations in understanding politics, economics, social problems, and individual lives. Although sharing some of the assumptions and methods of other social and behavioral sciences, sociologists tend to take different perspectives than other social scientists. Understandably, this course emphasizes those approaches that are fairly unique to sociologists and, perhaps, anthropologists. For example, sociology emphasizes the importance of personal biography, immediate context, and collective history for understanding human behavior. We summarize these factors in the term: social structure. Much of the course is an attempt to define and identify social structire. We can contrast this structuralist approach to that of individualism, a way of thinking about people and their world that is profoundly embedded in American culture and society, and reflected for example in most psychological theories of human behavior. Because you are already probably so well accustomed to the individualist view, individualist explanations will probably seem more "obvious" and "true" than the alternative structuralist understanding we present. However, as a discipline with the aspirations of science, sociologists seek to determine whether what seems obvious is, in fact, true. Accordingly, we consider the diverse methods sociologists employ in their research.

American society has had a long love affair with sport. The number of sport participants has increased tremendously over the last decade, as has the proliferation of sports facilities and organizations. Larger proportions of our population than ever before are now directly and indirectly participating in sports activities. Spectator participation in the traditional sport events such as baseball, football and basketball has also increased as has the hours of exposure to these events on television where twenty-four hours of sports broadcasting is now easily available on cable sports channels. Not only is there increased media exposure to the traditional sports events, but now tennis, golf and gymnastics also enjoy national as well as well as international prominence.

It is also apparent that American society's attitude towards sports participation has expanded to more fully include minorities and women. Age no longer is seen as much of a constraint to participation as it once was. There are now programs available from the cradle to the grave.

Given the fact that sport is an integral part of our society most of our knowledge of sport comes mainly from hear say, observation, and sports journalism which has until recently not been too critical. In this information environment the sports myths which have been perpetuated have remained unchallenged.

.

In this course the linkages between sport and society will systematically be examined within the respective functionalist and conflict theoretical frameworks accepting the premise that sports is a microcosm of society.

Among the issues covered in this course using these theoretical approaches are: the manner in which sport is linked to social institutions and the role of sport in the process of socializing youth with American values.

An introduction to the sociological study of inequality through an analysis of three of its fundamental dimensions class, race and gender. The course will explore how each of the three dimensions of inequality is related to the development of modern capitalist society as described by Marx and Weber. The course will provide an introduction to basic concepts in class analysis, to contemporary issues in feminist theories of gender, and to recent work on the social construction of race. It will also trace both the similarities and differences among the three dimensions, their relationship to one another and to the underlying dynamics of capitalist modernity. Texts include Richard Sennet and Jonathan Cobb, The Hidden Injuries of Class. Eric Olin Wright, Class Counts, R.W. Connel, Gender and Power, Oyeronke, Oyewumi, The Invention of Women, David Roediger, The Wages of Whiteness, Ron Takaki, Iron Cages: Race and Culture in Nineteenth Century America as well as selected readings from Marx and Weber.

That America is a nation of immigrants is one of the most common yet truest statements. In this course we will survey a vast range of the American Immigrant experience, that of the Irish, Germans, Jews, Italians, Chinese, Japanese, Blacks, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, and Mexicans.

Immigration to America can be broadly understood as consisting of four major waves: the first one, that which consisted of Northwest Europeans who immigrated up to the mid-19th century; the second one, that which consisted of Southern and East Europeans at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th; the third one, the movement from the South to the North of Black Americans and Mexicans precipitated by two World Wars; and the fourth one, from 1965 on, is still ongoing in the present, of immigrants mostly from Latin America and Asia.

At all times, our effort will be to understand the immigrant past of these ethnic groups, both for what it tells us about the past as well as their present and possible future. This course is a First-Year Seminar, limited to 25 entering students at the University. As such, it will be run as a seminar, involving a fair amount of discussion and writing.

This seminar will explore the possibilities for strengthening democracy and building community across race, gender and class, while acknowledging and addressing existing conflicts. How do we build community in our schools, neighborhoods, and cities comprised of people with perspectives and viewpoints that differ from our own? As communities, how do we constructively address conflicts that naturally arise among and within different groups? To what extent do this country's democratic principles continue to bind our society in the face of growing racial and class divisions? This seminar will explore a wide range of questions on intergroup relations and community building, taking into account issues of power, conflict, and social justice.

Students are encouraged to bring personal experience and perspective to enrich the discussion of theoretical readings. All are expected to participate actively, read carefully and write extensively. Students are required to write one paper, keep an analytic journal and make class presentations. There is one take-home exam.

As a discipline, Sociology has an extraordinarily rich canon of classical thought. Major thinkers such as Karl Marx, Émile Durkheim, and Max Weber grappled with the key problems of modernity, including the dramatic rise of capitalism and colonialism; new forms of social inequality; the advent of bureaucracy and democracy; the diminished role of religion and people's fears of what the loss of ultimate meaning might mean for their lives. The legacies of modernity are still very much with us. This course introduces students to the study of modernity and sociology through the lens of its major nineteenth and early twentieth-century thinkers. It also delves into the wide variety of contemporary writings on social life that are informed by the classical sociological tradition.

Social inequalities that is, inequalities in economic resources and opportunities, prestige or status, cultural capital, civil rights and political power have been a central concern of sociology from its inception. This course introduces students to sociology as a mode of inquiry by examining the most important questions that sociologists have asked about social inequalities, their answers to these questions, and the ways in which they have tried to assess the merits of competing answers. We begin with the classics Marx, Weber, and Durkheim in order to identify the fundamental issues and key concepts. We also examine the way in which theories of social inequality fit into larger conceptions of social order, conflict, and change. We then turn to studies that explore the causes and consequences of growing economic inequality, as experienced by different groups in the United States over the last 20 years.

This computer-based course for first year and sophomores allows participants to investigate how major social, economic, and political changes have affected the demographic structure of the US population in the past four decades. What does this mean for issues related to race, gender and inequality? How do you fit into the picture? We will address questions such as: How greatly have black-white income differences become reduced since the 1960s? Is the middle class shrinking? To what extent has the traditional family disintegrated? Will women continue to earn less than men? Will Generation X fare better than the Baby Boomers?

Through readings, lectures, and exercises on the WEB and Windows machines, this computer-based course you will learn how to examine such questions using US. census data and simple statistical analyses. In the process you will come to understand how major dimensions of the nation's social and demographic structure have changed from 1950 to the present. The course involves individual and team exercises as well as two exams. For First Year and Sophomore students.

An introduction to various problems in the analysis of social organization as they are treated in the works of several seminal figures in sociological thought. The course will ask how these thinkers accounted for the emergence, growth, and ordering of social organization, and how they accounted for social change. In the context of this analysis the student will be introduced to various accounts and uses of such theoretical concepts as structure, function, norm, power, solidarity, integration, differentiation, communication, stratification, adaptation to environment, social control and deviance. Attention will also be given to the way in which the organizational concepts developed in sociological theory have been used in modern sociological research.

Economic sociology is concerned with the social bases of economic behavior. It is one of the newest but most vibrant areas of sociology. This course presents an overview of the field. We begin with a discussion of the differences between sociological and economic approaches, followed by samples from the classic works of Adam Smith, Polanyi, Marx, and Weber. We then discuss the rise of the large corporation, focusing on both economic and sociological accounts. Following this unit, we move progressively from the internal workings of the firm toward macro-level discussions of the relation between business and society. Topics covered include issues of corporate control, the social meaning of money, production and financial markets, mergers and divestitures, the role of national cultures in shaping economic behavior, and fundamental questions about the distribution of income and wealth.

Prerequisites: At least one prior course in both sociology and economics or permission of the instructor.

As global citizens of the 21st century, we face a variety of dilemmas related to population: rapid population growth, unmet need for birth control, rapid urbanization, environmental degradation, threatened food and water security, the pressures of international migration and human trafficking, and the HIV/AIDS pandemic to name a few. This course introduces theoretical and empirical literature concerning selected population problems, with a special emphasis on issues affecting developing countries. We will use the basic concepts and measurement techniques of demographic analysis to better understand the causes, meanings, and implications of these population issues. Students enrolling in the class are expected to have a basic understanding of recent trends in world population distribution and growth. Students will be expected to develop a critical perspective as to why certain population trends are defined as problems and why analysts may disagree on the extent or nature of these problems. Student performance will be evaluated based on three exams, an individual research paper, and participation in class.

This course provides an introduction to the sociological study of crime and social control. After reviewing the definition and nature of crime in both classic and contemporary theories, we explore the major theoretical perspectives on the causes of crime and compare their ability to explain criminal activity by considering case studies drawn from books, film, and current events. Some of the specific topics we will explore include crime and policing in local communities; family and cultural influences on crime; the contours of criminal careers; race, class, and gender as they relate to crime in America; and historical trends in violent crime.

Requirements generally include two in-class exams, two papers, and class participation although these requirements are subject to change. No prerequisite or background in sociology is required.

In this section, undergraduate women volunteer as feminist mentors ("femtors") to work with girls at West Middle School in Ypsilanti or the Ann Arbor Girls' Middle School. The "It's Great to Be a Girl" program was designed by Carole Lapidos and Sally Wisotzkey as a continuance of their "Raising Strong and Confident Daughters" workshop for parents. The co-founders' hope was to provide adolescent girls with positive women role models to help them through their tumultuous middle school years. Chosen femtors organize and facilitate workshops over the course of ten weeks to build the confidence and expand the knowledge of the girls. The four major areas addressed are friendship, teasing and harassment, body image, and dream building. Additional areas may be added.

Permission of Carole Lapidos is required to register for this course. Permissions will be given at the following screening times (PLEASE SELECT & ATTEND ONE):

Tue, March 27 1-3pm

Wed, April 11 11am-1pm

Both screenings will be held at the Ginsberg Center For Community Service and Learning (1024 Hill Street, corner of Hill and East Univ) on the first floor.

Note that the required site time will be once a week for the mentoring session (either Thursday 2-5pm for West Middle School or Friday 10am-1pm for Ann Arbor Girls' Middle School [please allow an additional 15 minutes each way for transportation]). In addition, femtors will schedule one hour per week for a supervision session to discuss site and work on skill-building for mentoring.

For more information about the screening process or any other aspect of the program, contact Carole Lapidos at Carolelap@aol.com or 668-7402.

Formal organizations, or complex organizations, are ubiquitous in modern society. Our economy is composed of complex organizations; many of our political institutions are also complex organizations. Formal organizations also play a significant role in other spheres of our life religion, education, social services, sports, performing arts, etc. How are these organizations defined? Who are their members? How are they structured internally? How do they relate to other organizations, and the wider society? How do organizations and their members make decisions and carry them out as actions? These are some of the questions that this course will try to answer.

This course provides an introduction to contemporary theory and research on complex organizations, such as business enterprises, schools, government, and voluntary associations. We will consider the internal structure of organizations, the relationship of the organization to its environment, and organizational strategies and decision-making. The first part of the course covers the internal structure of organizations and introduces three perspectives on organizational structure: organizations as rational systems, as natural systems, and as open systems.

The second part of the course places the organization in a wider context and examines the organization's relationship to the various elements of its environment. We will learn how different theories conceptualize the organization's environment, and how organizations manage their relationship to the environment. In the third part of the course we will discuss a number of different questions and issues regarding organizational structure and behavior, such as the relationship between technology and structure, strategy and organizational structure, power and authority in organizations, organizational culture, conflict in organizations, and organizational learning.

The course will conclude with an examination of Japanese organizations. Using theories learned in the course, we will examine how and why Japanese organizations differ from Western organizations in their structure and behavior. By examining organizations in another society in a comparative perspective, we will gain important insights into complex organizations in our own society.

This course provides a sociological overview of U.S. family patterns. The first half of the course adopts an historical perspective, while the second half examines specific issues and controversies pertaining to contemporary family structures and change. Soc. 444 is primarily a lecture class, with some films and class discussions. Student performance will be assessed by means of two exams (midterm and non-cumulative final), and two short papers. For the final paper, each student will choose one aspect of family life (such as childrearing, divorce, gender relations, etc.) and interview different members in various generations of an American family/kin network, in order to identify the continuities and to assess how their experiences mesh with the materials and explanations presented in the course.

Credits: (3).

The study of social change includes assessing structural and cultural transformations that occur in institutions, organizations, communities, nation-states, and larger societal contexts. In this course we will consider issues of social and cultural change with respect to one theme (race relations), within the context of one nation-state (the United States), as affected by a specific period of social action (the Civil Rights Movement and its aftermath). This course will explore the events comprising the Civil Rights Movement and its aftermath in order to elucidate how social change emerges and what kinds of enduring effects such change may have. This effort will include a consideration of implicit assumptions about change as they concerned the collective goals and strategies of the Civil Rights Movement, and how mobilization for change was pursued. Specific points of emphasis will be on the levels of social change, the target(s) of social change, and the process of social change. An additional objective of the course will be to create a basis for critical understanding of the changes in Black-white relations in the United States from the 1960s until the present.

The course will examine how people become social deviants and how relevant social institutions contribute to this process. Early portions will examine the legal enforcement, judicial and corrections systems which together determine who will be designated deviant and with what consequences. Later portions will focus on particular forms of deviance (e.g., delinquency, theft, fraud, rape) with a view to understanding and evaluating the several theoretical perspectives that have been proposed to explain their genesis and perpetuation.

Detroit was, arguably, the world's most important metropolis in the Twentieth Century. The modern system of industrial production was perfected there giving the world a product that greatly changed most cultures. The modern industrial union movement emerged in Detroit leading eventually to the development of a highly secure and politically influential blue-collar middle class. The United States and its Allies defeated Germany in World War II and the German and Japanese dictators in World War II because of the tremendous ingenuity of Detroit's engineers and the strong Blacks and hands of several hundred thousand Black and white men and women who produced planes, tanks, jeeps, and munitions. But no other American metropolis has been as riven by both economic class and race as Detroit. The residents of no other city have given support to so many conflicting political and religious movements including the Ku Klux Klan in the 1920s. The Black Muslims and Father Caughlin in the 1930s and a briefly vibrant Communist party. And Detroit is the only American city in which federal troops have been called out to the streets four times to put down Black-white conflict.

This mini course will focus upon these developments in Detroit and seek to explain why racial, geographic, and economic gaps remain very large in the Twentieth First Century. There will also be an exploration of how past and current trends will shape the future of this great metropolis.

This course will meet late on the Tuesday and Thursday afternoons of one week. The following Saturday will be spent on a daylong bus tour of the city of Detroit and its suburbs. The course will then meet late on the following Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. Students will be required to read approximately three paperback books about the social, economic, racial, and geographic history of metropolitan Detroit. A brief written test will be administered during the final class meeting but no term paper or other essay will be required. Students will be obligated to attend the five meetings of this mini-course to obtain credit. For further information, please send a message to the instructor at: renf@umich.edu
