Course DescriptionA sociological perspective allows us to see generality in particularity, and strangeness in the familiar. This course gives the students a sociological perspective useful for investigating ordinary, common everyday activities and interaction that most of us find routinely engaging. Some concentration is provided to the urban experience of everyday life. Through examining seemingly mundane behaviours--eating, chatting, watching TV, etc., students study underlying structures that shape social behaviour and learn about historical and qualitative social research methods.
