ME33SR Studying Social Life
No face to face on campus attendance required
This course aims to extend students' knowledge of sociology by addressing how sociologists identify and conceptualise issues and how they then go about designing and conducting their research. Certain types of questions require particular sociological approaches to answer them.
In this course, we consider the social nature of micro-level and experiential issues and their relationship to wider, macro-level cultural and structural forces in such a way that 'personal troubles' can be connected to 'public issues', a core endeavour of sociological thought and research.
Themes covered on the course include: the body, emotions, sex and intimacy, the life course and consumption.
You will be joining SO2006 in week 7.
