SOC 395F • Contemporary Readings in Family Sociology
12:00 PM-3:00 PM
This graduate level course is designed for students with an interest in family sociology. Each week will be devoted to one contemporary reading that is broadly located in the field of family sociology. Class discussions will center around analysis and critique of the reading, how the reading fits in the field of family sociology, what this reading teaches us about our own research and writing, and future directions for research suggested by the reading. Some of the specific topics to be addressed in relation to family sociology include gender, sexuality, race, mental and physical health, and aging and the life course.
Evaluation will be based on written commentary (1-2 pages) on each week's reading assignment.
