This course is designed to introduce Sociology as a field of inquiry and analysis. What is the sociological imagination? How have sociological perspectives shed light on the particular contexts they analyzed, and on contemporary social processes? Is a social problem the same as a sociological problem? We will read from a wide range of thinkers and writers analysing diverse social phenomena. This is an introductory core course of the BA Sociology Honours programme, and lays the basic foundation for other courses that students will take as they develop their disciplinary foundation in Sociology in greater depth over subsequent semesters.
