12 weeks of culture
| Gabriel |
Jenn posted her draft syllabus for grad soc of culture / cultural sociology. It looks like about the best survey of the literature you could get in 12 weeks and about a thousand pages of material. Aside from simply choosing good readings, she’s managed to organize them into weeks in a way that imposes a good sense of order on an often messy and amorphous set of issues. She also does a much better job than I do of covering all parts of the field. (My syllabus is unabashedly production-centric, as it’s part of a two quarter sequence with a sister course taught by a colleague on meaning-centric approaches). I highly recommend checking it out for any grad students prepping for a field exam or faculty prepping a course.
