-  CULTURAL SOCIOLOGY: This student-directed seminar will investigate the topic of culture in a sociological perspective. Cultural sociology examines beyond the current diluted notion of culture as the four fs: Food, Festival, Folklore, and Fashion, and further analyzes how these systems of orientation influence ones goal orientation, perception, and behavioral output in multiple frames of analyses. Furthermore, the seminar will investigate whether the multiculturalism that many Western societies attempt to achieve requires a metacultural system for multiple cultures to flourish and co-exist. To do this, students will explore both classic and contemporary theorists such as Durkheim, Weber, Bourdieu, Goffman, and other thinkers. By the end of this course, students will explain how differen&~ ces in core sociological institutions and memories of different cultures can lead to similarities and differences of socio-economic outcomes between cultural groups such as the Chinese, Germans, Japanese, and Jews, to understand the differences, disparities, and inequalities in contemporary multicultural societies such as Canada, USA, the UK, and so forth. Students who are interested should send a statement of intent including year of study, major, list of sociology courses you have taken so far, and reasons for interest to the Student Coordinator at
