Gender and Society (SOCI 6320)

Sociology of Work  (SOCI 6360)

This course will introduce students to the sociology of work at an advanced level. The sociology of work helps us understand how individual experiences, relationships, and occupational outcomes are all related to how we define, organize, and divide labor in society. In particular, this course focuses on three major areas of theoretical and empirical inquiry: (1) transformations in work over time, (2) characteristics of work in various sectors (e.g., manufacturing, service), and (3) the relationship between work and social inequalities.

Instructor: Dr. Allyson Stokes, b15aejs@mun.ca

Current Topics in Social Behaviour (SOCI 6620)

This course examines theories of social control, emphasizing their importance in structuring sociological and criminological thought. Content reflects upon societies’ continuously changing values and norms that result from dynamic social, cultural, economic, and political processes and contexts to inform our understanding of social control. In this course, students also explore how, when, and why some forms of control are particularly pronounced within and exerted upon certain groups, which contributes to complex challenges, conflicts, and harms in society.
