Courses for Spring 2023

  • Social Forces: An Introduction to Sociology

    Social forces constrain and empower us, bond us together and push us apart. Sociology explores the workings of societies large and small: nations, organizations, communities, families, and other groups. How do societies shape action and identity, and why are social pressures so hard to defy? How do societies distribute wealth and power, and why do inequalities so often coalesce around race, ethnicity, class, and gender? How do established practices persist, and when do movements arise to challenge them? Examining such themes across a range of issues and topics, this course provides a springboard for future study throughout the social sciences.

  • From Macro to Micro: Experiencing Education (In)equality in and beyond Schools

    In American society a paradox exists: education is both a conduit of mobility and inequality. Schooling offers the potential for greater opportunities; yet the disparate nature of school-communities often compound disadvantages for others. In this course, we explore the complex “ecology” of educational inequality, from macro- to micro-dimensions, exploring economics, housing, intergroup dynamics, race and racism, gender and sexism, poverty and class, and other phenomena. It will provide students with a basis for understanding the relationship between education and society, and we will explore the intersectional ways that group distinctions, material and political realities impact people’s lives.

  • Social Inequality: Change and Continuity in the U.S.

    Although we like to believe the U.S. is the land of opportunity, it has lower equality of opportunity than most developed countries. What does inequality of opportunity in the U.S. look like and how has it changed or remained stable over the last several decades? We will examine theories, characteristics, and trends of socioeconomic inequality in the U.S., focusing on how this inequality shapes children’s life chances. In the process, this course will help us think about what an ideal level of equality of opportunity might look like and social changes that could help us achieve it.

  • The Sociology of Race

    The course examines the main theories in the Sociology of race, racism and discrimination. It focuses on how race patterns the experiences of ethno-racial groups and simultaneously defines the contours of systemic racism and inequality. It teaches students how to lead and participate in critical discussions, collaborate on the analysis of data, write research-based policy proposals with a client orientation, and engage with current issues surrounding the sociology of race, discrimination and racism. While the focus is primarily sociological, the course takes a multivalent approach to examine how racial inequality persists in a presumably “post-racial” society.

  • Theory and Practice of Engaged Scholarship

    Efforts are underway across college and university campuses—in the United States and globally—to increase opportunities for community-engaged teaching, learning, and research. What is engaged scholarship and how does it challenge (and/or complement) more traditional concepts of scholarship and disciplinary knowledge? What are the historical, practical, methodological, ethical, and other considerations associated with engaged scholarship? Through investigating these and other questions, students will emerge from this course with a critical understanding of engaged scholarship at Brown University and in the broader landscape of U.S. higher education. Students will be equipped to design a course of study that integrates community practice with academic knowledge throughout the remainder of their time at Brown and beyond. SOC 0310 fulfills a requirement for the Engaged Scholarship Certificate.

  • Methods of Social Research

    This course aims to impart a critical perspective of, and an empirical familiarity with, the range of methods available to sociological researchers to answer interesting, important, and complex social research questions. It introduces students to the frameworks and methods of conducting sociological research -- from both a qualitative and quantitative perspective. We will examine broadly defined methodological approaches to doing sociology such as survey research, ethnography and interviews, and historical/comparative studies. These methodological approaches correspond to distinct conceptualizations of social life and the science dedicated to studying it. Over the course of the semester, students will focus on developing a fully feasible research proposal.

  • Criminal Courts and the Law in an Era of Mass Incarceration

    This course provides a comprehensive introduction to America’s criminal court system and all its institutional stakeholders. We will examine America’s criminal court system from myriad of different perspectives: courts as organizations, courts as social arrangements of professionals, courts as providers of social services and courts as consumer institutions – providing the experience of justice to victims, witnesses, defendants and jurors. We will focus on state courts as well as the federal system.

  • Context Research for Innovation

    This course brings design thinking into conversation with qualitative research methods, examining the elements of a comprehensive perspective of context. It introduces students to design research methods, ethnographic research methods, and how they work together. Students will learn how to use these methods to identify and engage in "deep hanging out" with the problem, gap or inefficiency in question. They will then move on to patient contextualized opportunity identification for meaningful innovation. By the end of the course, students will have developed a process for effective, through innovation context analysis. Relevant for designers of products, services, organizations , and experience.

  • Migration in the Americas

    Examines historical trends and determinants of migration from Latin America to the United States. Each stage of the migration process is examined: the decision to migrate, getting across international borders, settlement and integration in destinations, and return to places of origin. The course integrates theories and empirical studies of international migration with hands-on analysis of survey data from the Mexican and Latin American Migration Projects, the two largest survey databases for studying migration in the Americas. Students will learn how to formulate and operationalize research hypotheses, read, process, and analyze survey data files, and present and interpret research results. While the majority of this course will be conducted on campus, it includes one-week, embedded travel to Mexico City during spring break (March 25 - April 1, 2023) to explore the research priorities, perspectives and approaches of Mexican migration scholars, and in particular, to gain exposure to the multidimensionality of international migration flows including transit migration from Central and South America enroute to the Mexico-U.S. border and migration within Latin America. Students interested in this off-campus course must submit an application in Via TRM. Application deadline is December 5, 2022. Students will be notified of admission in mid-December.

  • Power, Knowledge and Justice in Global Social Change

    How bad is climate change, and how much worse it will get? How are global inequalities’ changing? What are their consequences? How is white supremacy implicated here? What is our responsibility in analyzing/engaging these questions? You have at least an implicit response to these questions and others addressing global transformations. This course will help refine your understandings by inviting you to consider the actors, structures, norms and powers shaping how change works and why we judge its expressions as we do. Across some 20 areas of global change, we compare conceptions of power and justice in their various articulations.

  • Urban Sociology: Neighborhoods, Crime, and Punishment

    Crime is often seen as a “city problem.” But not all cities/towns are alike and, more than that, not all neighborhoods are alike. In fact, one of sociology’s most enduring findings is that certain social problems—including crime—are highly concentrated within neighborhoods. The central question this course seeks to answer is: “Why do neighborhoods vary in rates of crime and punishment?” In addressing this question, the course covers a wide range of theories, paying particular attention to ecological, social structural, and cultural aspects of community-life. In addition to covering the main sociological theories in these areas, the course will also focus on several in-depth topics including: the prison boom, immigration, mass imprisonment, and mass supervision.

  • Martial Arts, Culture, and Society

    In this upper level undergraduate course for which there are no prerequisites, we consider how sociology, and other social sciences, help us understand martial arts and other bodymindful practices (including yoga!) and how they might inform the social sciences. We consider how these practices, their organizations, and their cultures shape, and are shaped by, different structures of power and privilege. We concentrate on martial arts because they straddle such an important axial dimension of society around violence. Enrollment limited to 20.

  • Critical Race Theory

    We will examine US race, racism, and racial inequality through the lens of critical race theory. We start with an examination of the development of critical race theory in the legal academy and explore the foundational principles of the theoretical framework. We will utilize a critical race frame to analyze the law as a tool of the US racial state, a mechanism through which the state has created and maintained race privilege and corresponding racial oppression. We will also compare the critical race paradigm that developed in the legal academy to some of the most critical race perspectives in sociology.

  • Contemporary Social Theory

    This course introduces key theorists and concepts in contemporary social theory to advanced social science students who have taken courses in classical theory. It focuses on the lineages of sociological concepts like hegemony, Orientalism, symbolic power etc. which are widely used in the sociological lexicon and seeks to demonstrate how these concepts are applied in empirical research. The course also aims to discuss the major axes of domination in modern society as developed by each theory. This will lead to a discussion of the underlying aims of social theory, and the circumstances under which sociology can be critical and emancipatory.

  • Social Theory Now

    Most courses in social theory cover either “classical theory” (stopping around WWII) or “contemporary theory” (stopping in the early 1990s). This course offers a broad overview of recent trends and new directions in social theory. It focuses on works published since 2000 by sociologists and by theorists that have been influential in sociology. The course covers conversations in “metatheory” around mechanisms and fields, science studies approaches to the body and nature, diverging interpretations of the place of culture, debates around identity, and critical perspectives including feminist theory and postcolonial theory.

  • Applications in Geographic Information Systems

    This course is for graduate students seeking to develop their GIS skills further and to gain practice applying GIS methods in a research-oriented setting. The course is organized around a set of social science topics—as opposed to sequential coverage of various methods—and the focus is on getting from research question to analytical results to interpretation of findings. The course emphasizes practice matching concept to tool, as well as identifying appropriate tools and combining them successfully. Independent research skills using GIS are developed via the reading of published literature, the guided replication of results, and the interpretation of findings.

  • Directed Research Practicum - MSAR Students Only

    The Directed Research Practicum (SOC 2982) is a one semester course taken in conjunction with an on- or off-campus research internship. The course consists of a directed reading of methodological texts and research articles selected by the student and the faculty director that are of direct relevance to the methodological issues and challenges encountered in the internship. The student and faculty director will meet on a weekly basis to review the readings, assignments, and discuss how the methods on paper “come to life” during the internship experience. Faculty directors need not be involved with the actual internship work (i.e. the internship is off-campus or with an on-campus office), unless the student is working on the faculty member’s research project.
