|Course Description:||This course is the core course for the Culture and Knowledge field in the Ph.D. program in the Department of Sociology. The course is designed as an introduction to the theoretical debates about culture, representation, and identity formation, and about issues of structure and agency raised by these debates. It explores classical and contemporary theoretical approaches to the study of culture and knowledge, and diverse methodologies including discourse analysis, narratives, frame analysis, and ethnography. We will focus on a few selected research areas that have been especially affected by the "turn to culture" including gender, race, class, and nation.|
