The wisdom of sociology: Sam Richards at TEDxLacador

How can an academic discipline like Sociology be life changing? This talk suggests one way by exploring how sociologists teach us to re-imagine our personal problems and ourselves. In the end, we learn that even in our most private and seemingly isolated moments, we may be more connected to others than we realize.

His unique ability to connect with students along with his innovative use of technology in the classroom makes Sam Richards a very popular Sociology professor in the United States. Every semester over 750 students at Penn State University take his class on race and ethnic relations, the largest course on this subject in the world. He creates an active learning space where he addresses with humor and courage the very questions that most of us choose to avoid. Sam is also a co-founder of Penn State's World in Conversation Center. Every year, thousands of students from around the world participate in the Center's mission to bring conflict into collaboration through peer-facilitated dialogue.

What is sociology?

In this introduction to the discipline of sociology, Dr. Lori Peek overviews the focus, history and approach of sociological inquiry. She defines sociology as the systematic study of society, and the sociological perspective as one that analyzes patterns of individual experience. She identifies several foundation thinkers, including Comte, Marx, Weber and Durkheim, and describes the major theoretical approaches that derive from them. She also focuses on methodological aspects of sociology, defining the scales at which sociologists work and the differences between quantitative and qualitative data gathering and analysis. She highlights some key sociological concepts, including structure and agency, social stratification and inequality. She ends by discussing the future of sociology, and highlights the move toward interdisciplinary work and new methodologies to address wicked problems.

What is sociology???

I applied for a PGCE course and I had to make a video explaining to 16 year olds, What is sociology? It would have been better if I'd used a BBC-circa-1948 voice, but I didn't have the guts.

What is Sociology?

This video discusses the definition of sociology as defined by the American Sociological Association and gives examples of different social institutions. The example used in this video describes two seemingly similar students with very different outcomes in their post-secondary educational experiences and uses the concept of the sociological imagination to understand the impact of social structures on the individual.

Watch this video as a foundation to your understanding of the discipline. Further information on the foundation of sociology can be found in Chapter 1 in Sociology 2e by OpenStax College.

Sociologists on Sociology

This video highlights the unique contributions of sociology to the understanding of today’s most divisive issues, sixteen sociologists speak briefly to the need for and impact of their field.

“Sociologists on Sociology” is a primer on a discipline that studies many of the major issues confronting American society. As one respondent puts it: “So much of what is going on with our political climate and the rhetoric right now is all about talking about individual people or individual communities. The reality is, these are collective problems that have structural bases.”

From sexuality to criminology and from religion to the family, sociologists are investigating and reporting on the most sensitive problems confronting American society.

We’ll discuss modes of production, their development, and how they fit into Marx’s overall theory of historical development, along with class struggle and revolution.
