What are social statistics? How are they produced? How are they used? And why are they important? The second course in the methods sequence in Sociology, this course introduces students to basic quantitative methods commonly used in the social sciences. Students will develop their “quantitative literacy” by identifying research questions best suited to quantitative methods, understanding the logic of statistical methods, analyzing quantitative data in Excel, and communicating those findings. After completing this course, students will have the skills to pursue and critically evaluate research using quantitative methods in future academic and career settings, as well as be critical readers of sociological literature and press reports that use statistics.

Language Loss: Culture, Politics, Self
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

This open educational resource / zero-cost textbook (OER/ZTC) course site was created as part of the CUNY and SUNY 2017-19 Open Educational Resources Initiatives.

Course Description: What does it mean to lose or risk losing your language? What is the value of language, to speakers, to experts like anthropologists, to humanity more broadly? This course explores answers to these questions through thinking about language as a cultural practice and object, a political activity and topic, and something that is deeply entwined with speakers’ senses of self. We will consider case studies from the US immigrant experience as well as cases of language endangerment and loss around the globe. To analyze these issues more immediately, you will do a research project about a multilingual community to which they have access. You will collect online and/or offline evidence to tell a story about the ways multilingual practices shape relationships, life trajectories, collective histories, and material and symbolic spaces in a community.

Sociology of Sports
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating

This course takes a critical examination of sports and society from the standpoint of nation formation. Sports as a product of history are inherently political and a product of culture, power relations, and society. Common social beliefs: democracy, merit, rights, and nationality are troubled from the perspective of the United States rooted in settler-colonialism and sports as a site of conflict and potential social change. This course requires a view of sports that is necessarily different from what is typically expressed in mainstream media.

Because this is an introductory level course the basic goal is for students to demonstrate a sociological perspective. One does not need to be a sports fan or to even know a lot about sports. Conversely, an encyclopedic knowledge of sports does not necessarily give one an advantage in the course. All students will be assessed by their ability to examine the context of society, social issues, and themselves that arise in the world of sports.

Sociology of Hip-Hop: Beyond Beats and Rhymes
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating

Buried in the many headlines of 2017 was this news story about America’s music consumption: for the first time hip-hop was more popular than rock. This fact reflects hip-hop’s contemporary evolution into a multi-billion-dollar industry consumed worldwide. It also obscures hip-hop’s modest beginnings as the art form of choice for marginalized black and brown youth living in the disinvested 1970’s South Bronx. Though often reduced to rap alone, hip-hop is much more than a musical genre. It is also “a style of dress, dialect and language, way of looking at the world, and an aesthetic” (Aldridge and Stewart, 2005).

With that understanding as our foundation, this class uses a sociological lens to explore hip-hop’s significance beyond mere beats and rhymes. Through films, songs and critical readings we will discuss the social forces that influenced hip hop’s formation and evolution as well enable and constrain its future. This is not a music appreciation course so a love of hip hop is not required. Instead, what is required is the ability to think critically about how hip hop culture and music address race, class, gender and sexuality, inequality, police brutality and capitalism among other social issues. Our analysis will not only help you to develop a robust sociological imagination but also to become a more critical cultural consumer.

In this course students will become familiar with the history, current industry practices, and controversies involved in the mainstream mass media (newspapers, magazines, books, radio, television, film, recordings, and the Internet), their information and persuasion industries (news, advertising and public relations) and media issues (including impact, legal, and ethical issues).

In doing so, students will come to understand the relationships among the history of the media, their current industry practices, and the controversies that arise from these practices. A series of reading assignments, lectures, discussions (online, groups, pods) make up the course material. You are expected to read the assigned material before class and bring any questions or items for discussion. Following that discussion, we will explore areas in class that are beyond the readings.

This course introduces students to the discipline of sociology. What is sociology? Why is it important? Over the course of the semester students will develop what C. W Mills called a “sociological imagination” that will allow them to see how individuals are shaped by social structures and institutions, and in turn recreate those institutions. We will discuss theoretical and methodological approaches, becoming aware of how sociologists make sense of this complex social world.

Sociology of Immigration
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating

The New Colossus, written by Emma Lazarus’ and inscribed on the Statue of Liberty, is often used as support for the idea that the United States is a ‘nation of immigrants’. In reality, this poem and the ideology it buttresses masks many ugly truths about immigration. The truth is that we don’t welcome all immigrants with open arms or desire for them to stay permanently. These truths lead to contradictions in U.S. policy on immigration and the material consequences immigrants face as a result. Moreover, as immigration enforcement efforts increase with each new presidential administration, the resulting patterns of deportation and exclusion call into question the intent of policies that claim to protect American citizens at the expense of immigrants of color. This course addresses these complicated dynamics demonstrating how the United States plays dual roles protecting its image as a nation of immigrants while simultaneously determining the boundaries of who belongs often along racial lines.

Drug Use and Policy in the US
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

Rating

Human societies display remarkable creativity and persistence in the range of mind altering substances used historically and cross culturally, although drug use occupies very different social locations in different cultures and historical eras. In the modern era, the regulation of mind and mood altering substances has become enmeshed with larger systems of social control, including public health, criminal justice, immigration and economic globalization. While drug addiction is typically portrayed as an individual problem, both drug use and drug policy are fundamentally social processes, and cannot be separated from larger social and economic systems.

Libguide OER for Prof. Jill Cavanaugh's course: ANTH 3360: Language Loss: Culture, Politics and Self. What does it mean to lose or risk losing your language? What is the value of language, to speakers, to experts like anthropologists, to humanity more broadly? This course explores answers to these questions through thinking about language as a cultural practice and object, a political activity and topic, and something that is deeply entwined with speakers’ senses of self. We will consider case studies from the US immigrant experience as well as cases of language endangerment and loss around the globe. To analyze these issues more immediately, students will do a research project about a language in Brooklyn, which will involve mapping ethnographic research, photographic, interviews, and other evidence to tell a story about a particular language’s current vitality

WGST 3550 Prison Abolition: History, Theory and Practice
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

WGST 3550 Special Topics in Social Science: As mass uprisings against state violence have continued unabated since the police murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and Rayshard Brooks, bipartisan consensus has coalesced around the need to end mass incarceration and reform prisons and policing. Simultaneously, the revolutionary movement to abolish prisons and policing entirely has gained momentum (again), drawing on a lineage of Black freedom struggles, from the movement to abolish slavery to Black Lives Matter. Yet, many are unfamiliar with prison abolition or concerned about its impacts on their safety. In this course, students will engage with the contemporary prison abolition movement as both a vision for the future and a concrete set of strategies to create safety and undo incarceration in the present. With New York City experiencing a resurgence in brutal broken windows policing while the city is poised to build four new jails over the next six years (and maybe shut down the notorious Rikers Island jail complex), this course will provide Black feminist insight into a contemporary political fight with profound consequences for the lives of working class communities of color in NYC.

PRLS 3325 Institutions of Urban Life & the Latinx Experience, 1848-2018
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

This is an inter and trans-disciplinary course which has two main objectives. The first is to critically examine the multi-faceted evolution of the Latinx population as an urbanized segment of United States society. Specifically, the course seeks to provide a cross-cultural understanding of the diversity among Spanish-speaking people within the urban context. Different processes and roles over space and time will be problematized included but not limited to the role of urban institutions in the conflicts between assimilation and cultural preservation; the dynamics of migration, immigration, and settlement; and institutionalized participation in the social processes of United States urban life.

U.S. society today is in the middle of facing heightened social transformation in the early 21st Century. Since the inception of well over 150 years of Spanish presence in the United States, structures of inequality, oppression, and fusion remain in place. However, these structures—and challenges against them—are indeed changing along with the identity of what is “Urban” life and what roles Latinxs play in such formation.

Furthermore, as diverse social forces struggle over the terms of development and direction of change, the current state of affairs of Latinxs in the U.S. is full of rising social conflict, political mobilization, renewed revolutionary movements, further economic restructuring, transnational migration, and cultural redefinition. These are some of the aspects/dynamics that will be investigated throughout the course.

However, it is only possible [in 15 weeks] to cover a limited surface/amount of the complicated and rich history and multiple research agendas on the complex relationship between the making of urban life in the U.S. and the role of Latinxs within such historical formation.

The second goal is to improve your skills in critical reading and writing. You will work on understanding and interpreting the materials throughout the course. Paper assignments and essay exams will provide opportunities to develop your OWN interpretations systematically and polish your writing skills.

Music: Its Language, History, and Culture
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

In 2006 faculty of the Conservatory of Music wrote and published their own textbook for Core Curriculum 1.3 (CC 1.3), Music: Its Language, History, and Culture. Published by Kendall-Hunt, the reader was bundled with a subscription to the Rhapsody music streaming service. The reader and music service were to give a skeletal structure for all instructors of CC 1.3 for the development of course content focusing on the individual musical strengths and interests of each instructor. We also wanted to keep the costs to students as low as possible by not taking any royalties. The result was a book and music service priced in the $60 range when a brief edition of a standard music appreciation text with CDs was priced around $140. In 2014 our contract with Kendall-Hunt was fulfilled and in the spirit of our original concept we decided to make the reader, now used for Music 1300, available as a free PDF book under Creative Commons share and share alike licensing. This, along with the use of free (advertising supported) streaming music services, like Spotify, allows us to offer primary course materials to our students in Music 1300 at no cost to them. The flat textbook can be downloaded above and the multimedia and expanded textbook is available at http://libguides.brooklyn.cuny.edu/music1300/. The guide also provides a platform for additional content (audio, video and other materials) related to, but not a part of the book, and a place where visitors can contribute their own content or comments.
