Course Description: This course explores the sociological study of culture, exploring topics such as art, sport, food, religion, music, social media, and cultural memory. Students examine how culture can reproduce, organize, and challenge particular social values and structures. The course also traces the rise of cultural sociology in the late 20th century, a time when sociologists became increasingly interested in popular culture and everyday life and cultural critics began to consider the sociological context of literature, art, and film. Using these innovative studies as a framework, each week students analyze an aspect of contemporary culture and consider its sociological importance. They gain an understanding of the cultural dimensions of social life and the key theories and methods used to critically analyze cultural experience.
