Civility Week: Sociology, Self-Reflexivity and Inequality

October 7, 2021 @ 1:30 pm - 2:15 pm

The goal of the presentation is to discuss how the sociological lens can encourage self-reflexivity and understand the ways in which individuals contribute to social reproduction. As part of the presentation, I will discuss how our social location (race, class and gender) shapes the way we view ourselves and the society in which we live, limitations of experiential knowledge and conclude with moving onto discussing the importance of the scientific methodology in the production of knowledge. My co-presenter, who is a student at Brookdale and has been in two of my classes, will reflect on how that sociological lens has been useful to her, something that has piqued her interest in sociology.

* The Civility Week Student Activity Card enables students to earn raffle tickets for event attendance. Cards are available for pick-up in SLC-105, stamped at in-person events, and an honor system is used to self-stamp at remote live events. Cards should be returned to SLC-105 at the end of Civility Week. Raffle winners will be contacted via email to collect gift certificates and Brookdale gear!


Presented by Dr. Diditi Mitra, Associate Professor of Sociology, and Gabrielle Green, Sociology Student
