The Sociological Imagination What is it?  Self and society: we are part of a larger, greater world; communities, groups, societies  Terrible but magnificent lesson: issue for the nonconformist- what is really you and what is you trying to fit in or conform to society?  “Big” picture and Objectified self: step away from stigma and find how you compare and differ with other people and groups  Importance of time, place and actions; for example, Spring break or smoking advertising in the 20s-70s C. Wright Mills  Personal biography and history (understanding history affects us individually today)  Role of group memberships (activity groups, sports, neighborhoods, race, gender)  Individually exists, only part of who we are  We have agency, however- limited Peter Berger  Sociology is not just a common sense reaction, it is bound by research and academics with a set of rules making it a science, with a goal of analysis  Challenge conventional truths  Interconnectedness of smaller units (individuals) to the larger units (groups/institutions) of society: none of these things stand alone, cannot be part of a group without being part of an institution or organization Nested Analysis: Corporation nation, families that work, teen pregnancy Turning personal into public: example: divorce Private: between to people who are not compatible, have money issues, or one cheated on the other Public: divorce parties, remarry, openly discuss to family and friends, move out of house
