Courses for Spring 2020

  • Perspectives on Society: 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

    An introduction to the sociological study of sex and gender. More specifically, this course explores how sexuality is perceived, defined, and experienced in the context of society. How sexuality influences our lives, is reflected in social norms, attitudes and beliefs, through public and private policies and practices, and the social institutions is also investigated. This class also focuses on how prevalent gender differences really are in our society and examines the social construction of gender.

  • Organizations and Society

    We live in a society of organizations. We are born inside organizations, we are educated inside organizations, we work inside organizations, and when we die, we will be buried by organizations. Organizations are therefore central to processes that shape individual lives and societal trends, from widening income inequality, to the spread of innovations, to struggles over public policy. This course introduces the field of Organizational Studies, examining organizations as complex, multifaceted social settings. By investigating how organizations and society shape each other, students will build skills for informed, socially-responsible engagement in an increasingly organizational society.

  • Unequal From Birth: Child Health From a Social Perspective

    Why are the children of immigrants so healthy? How do experiences in families, schools, neighborhoods and the health care system produce unequal health? What are the consequences of health for the economic and social welfare of individuals and populations? We will read, discuss and evaluate social science evidence to understand how social and economic inequalities produce and result from health inequalities among youth. Attention will be given to both industrialized and developing societies, and to potential ways that social policies can equalize children's health. This course is designed for first-year students and should appeal to a variety of interests, including social justice, medicine, research and law. Enrollment limited to 19 first year students.

  • Theory and Practice of Engaged Scholarship (ESP Seminar)

    Efforts are underway across university and college campuses -- in the United States and globally -- to increase opportunities for engaged 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 ethical, practical, and other challenges associated with community-engaged scholarship? The course will use case studies, field work, team projects, and guest speakers from diverse disciplines and sectors to investigate these and other questions. Enrollment limited to Engaged Scholars Program participants. Limited to 40 students per section.

  • Law, Innovation and Entrepreneurship

    This seminar explores the relationship between law and organizational change, with particular attention to the emergence of new technologies, new enterprises, and new fields. Topics focus on underlying sociological processes, not on technical or practical details of particular legal or industrial settings. The seminar is aimed at advanced students who are familiar with organizational sociology; familiarity with law is helpful, but not essential. Through shared and individual readings, weekly discussions, and e-mail dialogs, this course helps students to refine and extend their thinking on important and controversial topics at the intersection of contemporary organizational and socio-legal studies.

  • Time and Social Inequality

    This course explores the subject of time from a sociological perspective. The international adoption of a standardized time alludes to a universality in the experience of time. Yet, time is neither experienced nor distributed equally. In this course, we will explore temporal inequalities in contemporary U.S. society by considering how time is patterned, managed, and experienced across social boundaries.

  • 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.

  • Global Sociology: Capitalism, Colonialism and the Making of the Modern World

    This course seeks to question our sense of place in the world. Sociology often takes the nation as a bounded unit of analysis. Yet, the history of the modern world is one of empires, colonialism and transnational connections. These global racial and colonial histories are frequently ignored or silenced. This course focuses on Providence and Rhode Island to look at the embeddedness of local lives in global social processes. If we acknowledge that the world has always been global, how does that change our understanding of contemporary issues? How should we rethink sociology to break with its colonial origins?

  • Technology and Development

    A “smart” global order is currently being created, where information and communication technologies dominate public arenas and private lives. Much of the debates on new technologies have focused on the global North, yet in so many ways the impact on the global South may be far more significant. In this course, we will explore the history, present and possible futures of the use of technologies for transforming economic, social and political lives. The technologies discussed will range from the steam power leading to the 19th century industrial revolution to today’s mobile phone technologies, workforce automation, but also facial-recognition technology and spyware.

  • Healthcare Professions, Organizations, and Markets

    When we are sick and seek treatment, we encounter a complex system of healthcare. This course explores variations in who provides care, how the care is delivered, and how it’s paid for, and whether it has consequential impacts on patient outcomes. It also considers the important role of state regulations and patient driven social movements in shaping care. To untangle this system and understand the actors and structures that shape our healthcare experiences, both locally here in the United States as well as abroad, this course engages in a sociological analysis of healthcare professions, organizations, and markets.

  • Directed Research Practicum - MSAR Students Only

    The Directed Research Practicum 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 directly relevant to the methodological issues/challenges encountered in the internship. The student and faculty director will meet weekly to review the readings. The practicum may include written assignments, literature reviews, and data analysis exercises. Faculty directors need not be involved with the actual internship work, unless the student is working on the faculty member’s research project.
