Course Description: This course examines the sociology of friendship, its place within theories of late modern society, and its history and significance for the individual. Students gain a foundation in key debates about friendship and key theorists in the field of friendship research, both classical and contemporary. While the study of friendship has traditionally been approached within psychology as an individualized relationship, this course explores the relevance of friendship to other sociological categories, including class, gender, intimacy, the self, the family, and the personal community. Students apply this knowledge to an understanding of society and connect their understanding of friendship to theories of social change in late modern societies. Friendship is examined initially as a modern construction whose meaning was shaped by the organization and supporting institutions of modern society. Its links with theories of traditionalization and individualization are also examined.
