SO 333 - Sociology of the Body


Credits: 3
Analysis of the body in contemporary social life. What do bodies tell us about ourselves, about others?  How do we feel in and about our bodies? Using sociological theory and qualitative research methodologies, students explore these questions by examining how the body is constructed and manipulated within social interactions and relationships. Bodily adornment practices (e.g., hairstyle choice, tattooing, exercise routines), bodily (dis)ability, and the medicalization of the body are among the topics examined.
Prerequisites: one sociology gateway course (SO 101 or SO 201 or SO 202 or SO 203 or SO 204), SO 227, and one additional sociology course.
