Courses: Senior Conference (SOCLB398001)

Fall 2013

Class Number: 1461
This seminar problematizes common sense notions that naturalize culture. From a sociological perspective on culture, it teaches analytical skills for unmasking the social forces underlying cultural constructions of meaning in social life. Its primary objectives are to: (1) examine major theoretical conceptions of culture; (2) explore studies that illustrate hegemonic cultural constructions of historical memory; political events; social problems; racial and ethnic images; gender images; and social class images; (3) and, finally, probe the implications of sub-cultures and counter-hegemonic movements as modes of resistance to cultural hegemony. Open to Bryn Mawr senior sociology majors only.
