SO2006: SOCIOLOGY OF EVERYDAY LIFE I: THE EMBODIED SELF (2019-2020)

Last modified: 25 Sep 2019 09:58


Course Overview

This follows on from level-one sociology. It is designed to highlight the ways that sociological theory informs the research endeavour, not only the questions sociologists raise, but also the particular modes through which we go about investigating them. The module examines these points in relation to a range of micro-level topics – the body, food and feeding, health and illness, the emotions, group behaviour, sex and gender, the life course and death and dying – all of which emphasise the nature of human interaction and sociological efforts to understand it.
