We’ve got a new series for you where we answer listener questions about sociology, theory, grad school, and more! So, in our inaugural episode we’re answering a HUGE question: How do you define “society”? Sounds easy, but trust us (and the ~20 min length of this episode), it ain’t! Tune in here to learn how we define society and its close connection with culture! And if you have your own question to ask, don’t be shy and send it to us. We’d love to try to answer it!
Society, culture, politics, nation state, identity
- Penguin published the very useful The Penguin Dictionary of Sociology (the source of our last definition and our Jeopardy questions), by Nicholas Abercrombie, Stephen Hill, and Bryan Turner
- Penn discussed collective memory and a collective identity in her definition of society
- If you wanna learn more about how incorrect borders are drawn and the Partition of India
