If the answer to the last question is in the affirmative, how and why did this come to be the case, and what consequences does it hold for our understanding of the past and of the future? These are the kinds of questions that great figures in sociology have been asking since the nineteenth-century, including classic theorists like Emile Durkheim, Max Weber, and Karl Marx, as well as more recent writers such as Ervin Goffman, Michel Foucault, Immanuel Wallerstein, and Edward Said. Prerequisite(s): one 100-level course in sociology, MCST 110 - Texts and Power: Foundations of Media and Cultural Studies , or permission of the instructor. (4 Credits)
