The goal of this course is to introduce social theory as the study of thinking about how we live together, to develop a way of perceiving that goes beyond the obvious to see the structures that shape our lives and selves in the modern and postmodern world.

Even a moment?s reflection will reveal the dazzling variety of issues and topics social theory addresses: individuality, community, economy, consumerism, politics, family, race, gender, technology, just to name a few. We cannot possibly cover them all in the space of a semester; we will have to be selective. First, we will focus on a few key thinkers who helped uncover the tensions and quandaries inherent in modern social existence. Next, we will briefly explore two contentious issues that impact how we understand personhood in the contemporary world: race and gender/feminist theory. We will spend the rest of the semester exploring contemporary social phenomena that impact us collectively: consumerism, globalization, how we produce technology, and the internet/social media. Consider this course a selection of appetizers, a jumping off point for you to explore further.
