Cultural Sociology

Spring 2021

Taught By: Julia Sonnevend

Section: A

CRN: 8563

Credits: 3

This graduate seminar will focus on contemporary writings in the field of cultural sociology.  The aim of the course is to help graduate students define their research areas and topics in relation to existing debates in the field. We will analyze recent, widely reviewed books for instance on the US student debt crisis, racial discrimination in the technology sector, the challenges of balancing motherhood and work, social performance and charismatic leadership in global politics, and contemporary forms of cultural memory. While examining best practices in researching the cultural dimensions of contemporary social life, we will also spend time on the practical side of publishing, like communicating with book editors and finding the right venues for scholarly publications.
