PSC380.24 State and Society

Political sociology is concerned with, above all, power relations in the social, political, and economic spheres. As such, we deal with different centers of power, both within the national unit and transnationally. This course introduces you to state structures, class structures and global structures. We will cover concepts such as power, representation, association, social capital, citizenship, collective action and issues such as state development, democratization, ‘old’ and ‘new’ social movements, and global networks. Equally crucial to this course is the understanding of interactions between the society and polity. (POL 3482)
