The module introduces students to a range of sociologically significant contemporary phenomena and the ways in which sociologists have sought to research them. More specifically, it will introduce students to the kind of theoretical perspectives and conceptual tools sociologists have used, along with the issues they have raised, in their research of those phenomena. As such, both theoretical and empirical sociological work will be explored to understand the kind of questions sociologists ask, as well as the answers they provide, in their analysis of the social world.
