Post-Classical Sociological Theory

CRN 29176 / We 6:00PM - 8:30PM / 2800 Wesley W Posvar Hall

This course will sample idiosyncratically from the post-classical theoretical tradition in sociology. The primary vectors of inquiry will include: “neo-” theories in class analysis (Marxist, Weberian, Durkheimian), the Frankfurt school, social construction, dramaturgical theory, practice theory, and theories of culture and representation (this course is available for Cultural Studies credit). In line with the substantive focus of the sociology department, we will also attend to the extent possible with these texts to issues of social inequality, especially class, race, and gender as principles of social organization of identities and institutions.
