The Self in Society: Studies of Autobiographies

This course uses sociological readings and a wide variety of autobiographical materials to help students make sociological sense of their own and others' lives. The course addresses how the development of identity and the development of personal empowerment are affected by discrimination. Selected readings by Goffman, Gilligan, Erikson, Mills, and others aid in the interpretation of autobiographies. Written and oral reports are used to practice the skills of listening, describing, analyzing, and interpreting.
