Courses for Fall 2024

  • 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.

  • Sex, Gender, and Society

    This course will explore contemporary frameworks and methodological approaches underpinning the sociological study of sex, gender, and sexuality. In addition to delving into key debates about sex, gender, and sexuality, this course will critically examine the social construction of sex, gender, and sexuality within different institutions and social contexts. Throughout the course, close attention will be paid to understanding how sex, gender, and sexuality are mutually constituted alongside other systems of inequality, such as race, ethnicity, class, and nationality, as well as how moments of tension, resistance, and change emerge.

  • Who Am I?

    A study of self in contemporary society. We examine the structural and situational forces that shape the self and their impact on personal development, orientations to the world, and interpersonal behavior; we investigate the development of the self as a way of being in the world that makes everyday doings and, ultimately society, possible. Enrollment limited to 19 first year students. Instructor permission required.

  • Inequalities and Health

    We start from the assumption that the social organization of society shapes definitions and experiences of health and illness, the distribution of diseases, and the responses to them. We explore the relevance of social structure and social interaction to health and well-being, emphasizing socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, gender, and social contexts such as relationships, families, schools, and neighborhoods. This is not a "sociology of medicine" course. It will not emphasize the profession of medicine, health care policy, or health care organizations. Enrollment limited to 19 first year students. Instructor permission required.

  • 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.
  • International Migration

    This course introduces the research and policies related to international migration, a phenomenon involving the dynamic movement of people across borders. The class provides the theoretical and empirical tools required to understand immigration's main theories and empirical debates. The course examines why people migrate and how and why immigrants settle where they do. Additionally, the class examines the structural forces influencing the experiences of immigrant groups in American society and the consequences of international migration for both immigrants and native-born citizens in the United States. Through readings, research, and discussions, students acquire skills needed to objectively analyze how immigration patterns people's lives and simultaneously shapes the boundaries of inclusion and exclusion in society.

  • Classical Sociological Theory

    How is modern society organized? What holds society together and what drives social change? Why is there such a large gap between the "modern" ideal of formal equality and the reality of factual inequality? Why do differences of class, race and gender persist? What is power and who has it? These questions have motivated generations of sociologists, but many of the arguments continue to be informed by the foundational classical theorists: Karl Marx, Max Weber, Emile Durkheim and W.E.B Du Bois. Looking at the transformations around them – the rise of capitalism, the modern nation-state, rational bureaucracy, the spread of colonialism, the decline of religion, struggles for emancipation and much more – they developed arguments that allow us to better understand ourselves, our actions, and the contemporary political, economic and social transformations around us. We explore the defining contributions of these theorists and link them to current debates and theories on systemic racism, gender/sex struggles, global inequalities, social movements and democracy.

  • 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.

  • Micro-Organizational Theory: Social Behavior in Organizations

    Micro-Organizational Theory focuses on the human dynamics of organizations as natural systems. It examines how individual attitudes, actions, and interactions make a difference for organizational processes and outcomes. This focus is contrasted with more macro-level approaches, which take the organization (instead of the individual) as the primary unit of analysis. For example, studies of organizations from an economic perspective are typically concerned with the performance of the organization relative to its competitors. Studies of organizations from a macro-sociological focus are typically concerned with an organization's routines and structures, contextualized by the broader environment. SOC 1311 takes a more micro and meso perspective that asks questions such as, "why do individuals in organization behave the way they do, how does this affect the organizations of which they are a part and how, in turn, are individuals affected by their organizations?"

  • Unstable Times: Migration, Identity and Societal Integration

    This course focuses on the changing experience of immigrants in American society. It builds on the premise that periods of social transformation are central to understanding the process of integration of people moving across borders and settling in particular locales. The course engages theories of immigrant incorporation to examine processes of identity formation and societal integration. The course also considers how immigrant integration is a major force reshaping social and political ideologies as well as how new patterns of exclusion emerge as immigrants confront the denial of resources, opportunities and access to citizenship.

  • What's Wrong with Empowerment:Critical perspectives on Development

    Women’s “empowerment” is a means and ends to international development. From microfinance self-help groups that foster women’s businesses, to corporate social responsibility projects that promote girls’ education, to campaigns against domestic violence, developmental initiatives target women. These projects are motivated by the commonsense understanding that focusing on women will not only make women better off, but also their families, neighborhoods, and the entire nation. This course analyzes the evolution and effects of women as a global solution to poverty. How did women become the targets of development? Are women empowered by development schemes we find today in their names?

  • 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 multiple areas of global change, we compare conceptions of power and justice in their various articulations.

  • Comparative Urban Political Economy

    For the first time, most people across the globe live in cities. Inequalities within both nations and cities are increasingly similar across national boundaries. This course ask how the politics of formal and informal institutions in cities produce and change inequalities of shelter, work, race, and other social identities, across urban space. We analyze cases from across the globe, along with a range of social science methods and theoretical perspectives.

  • 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.

  • Race and Wrongful Conviction in the United States

    This class examines the racial origins of wrongful conviction in the U.S. criminal justice system. We examine how wrongful conviction is created through both formal laws as well as social norms of practice that obscure how racial bias infiltrates seemingly race-neutral areas of due process. While legal scholars and lawyers examine wrongful conviction as a type of “misfire” in an otherwise functioning criminal justice system, this course considers how wrongful conviction is type of social system within the mainstay of the criminal justice system, at large. In the tradition of W.E.B. Du Bois, we examine how racism is the engine of this social system that is best referred to as “mass wrongful conviction.”

  • Medical Sociology

    How do institutions, policies, and structures shape the health of individuals and populations? How has healthcare changed over time? To what extent are the concepts of “health”, “illness”, and “disability” innate or socially constructed? This course will tackle these questions, and more, through the study of medical sociology. The course is designed for undergraduates with at least some familiarity with sociological concepts. Throughout the course, students will learn to apply theoretical and empirical insights from the readings to real-world situations. Most readings will focus on the United States, but we will occasionally read and discuss research on other countries.
  • Individual Research Project

  • The Souls of Sociology: W.E.B Du Bois and Critical Sociologies of Race

    This course investigates Du Bois’ empirical and theoretical sociological work and its implications for contemporary sociology. W.E.B Du Bois is recognized as a pioneer of sociology of race, but his work is seldom explored. The first part of this course we discuss in-depth Du Bois work to construct the bases for a Du Boisian sociology. The second part we will read contemporary theories of race through the lens of Du Bois’ work. The final section we will read contemporary empirical works in the field of race and ethnicity, reflect how we would conduct them differently from a Du Boisian perspective.

  • Environmental Sociology

    As contestation over environmental concerns proliferates, it draws increasing attention from sociologists. But sociological research on environmental issues raises major challenges. Social-environmental relationships raise theoretical and methodological questions: How do we know an “environmental” issue when we see one? How can we effectively examine the relationships between environmental processes and social processes and structures?

  • Sociology of Education

    This course provides an overview of Sociology of Education, covering substantive, theoretical, and methodological issues in the field. Beginning with classical theories of education, the course will then provide an overview of the relationship between education and society, with a focus on its role in reducing and reproducing inequality. We will discuss causes and consequences of educational inequality, paying particular attention to education and the labor market. In the process, we will engage with ascriptive forms of stratification, including race and ethnicity. The focus of the course is education in the U.S., but we will occasionally incorporate international comparisons.

  • 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.
