Sociology. CUNY Panel: Rethinking the Disciplines. Women in the Curriculum Series.
Anderson, Margaret L.; Brewer, Rose M.; Sokoloff, Natalie J.; Wrigley, Julia; Bonilla-Santiago, Gloria
This collection of five essays examines the ways sociology, as a discipline, currently reflects ongoing scholarship on gender, race, ethnicity, social class, and sexual orientation. In "Scholarship and the Curriculum: The Study of Gender, Race, Ethnicity, and Class," Margaret L. Anderson argues that the study of race, class, and gender has become a new field within sociology. In "Sociology and Disciplinary Transformation," Rose M. Brewer examines some of the problems in the field, maintaining that there is a growing emphasis on the sociology of gender without consideration of race and that recent changes in the field have not embraced women of color and working-class women. In "Rethinking the Disciplines: Sociology and Criminology," Natalie J. Sokoloff argues that race, gender, and class are largely ignored in the fields of sociology and criminology, while Julia Wrigley, in "Rethinking the Disciplines: Sociology," notes that feminist study of gender potentially challenges both the core theoretical perspectives of the field and its subfield organization. In "Rethinking the Disciplines: Sociology of the Family," Gloria Bonilla-Santiago maintains that feminist, race, and ethnic studies have advanced sociologists' understanding of the family's relationships to the economy and the state. Each essay contains references. (MDM)
