Course description

This course will provide a critical survey of modern sociological theories, including critical theory, hermeneutics, structuralism, and post-modernism. Both the linkages of these theories to classical sociological concerns, and the relevance of these theories to emergent ideas of the body, time, agent, or space, would be tackled as the theories are brought to bear on both macro- and micro-sociological issues.

Students will be expected to show knowledge of the ways these theories inform discussions and generate theoretical advances in their chosen field of study.
