Sociologists in Action PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Sociologists in Action free pdf Sociologists in Action will provide vivid examples of how sociologists are using sociological tools to make a positive impact on our society. In each chapter, four or five public sociologists will describe, in vivid detail, how they have used sociology to understand and influence the world around them. The chapters will cover the key topics in sociology courses and the pieces will bring the subject matter of sociology to life for students, giving them clear examples of the power and usefulness of sociology as they learn the course content. The discussion questions and suggested additional readings and resources at the end of every chapter will provide students the opportunity to delve further into the topics covered and help create full and nuanced discussions, grounded in the oreal worldo work of public sociologists.Sociologists in Action, will include original, brief, highly readable articles from a wide array of Public Sociologists in Action, describing some of their work that has impacted society. The authors carefully choose sociologists who are using their skills and research on a wide range of issues, and through a wide variety of sociological methods and venues. Each chapter will contain four or five, 3-5 page PSIA pieces that will correspond closely to each of the first 11 chapters in The Engaged Sociologist, discluding the chapters on theory and methods. The majority of the PSIA sections will be written by the PSIAs themselves and carefully edited by Korgen and White. The SIA pieces in The Engaged Sociologist: Public Sociologists in Action will be significantly longer than the one-page SIA boxes in The Engaged Sociologist. This will allow for a deeper exploration of the specific sociological tools being applied as well as the methods and processes leading to critical social change. At the end of each chapter, the authors will include discussion questions that relate the SIA pieces to the topics in the corresponding chapters in The Engaged Sociologist, and provide additional readings and resources on the various topics. The result will be a public sociology reader that can be used in any course, but that will have a particularly strong synergy as a supplement to The Engaged Sociologist. 10% of the proceeds from this book will be donated to Free the Children.
