SOC 120 - Images, Society, and Identity


4 credit(s)
Will introduce students to some of the conceptual foundations in sociology through the analysis of various visual media found in historical and contemporary society. Throughout the semester, we will focus upon the various ways that such media impact individuals and social institutions. Virtually no aspect of visual culture is off-limits to this analysis. To this aim, we will analyze various visual media as a way of elucidating the key social variables of race, class, and gender, and a whole host of important intersectionalities. The course will begin with an introduction to foundational sociological concepts, and use these concepts throughout the semester to understand the prevalence, impact, and staying power of visual culture.
Core Requirement(s): Counts toward core requirement: Analyzing and Interpreting Texts.
