Modulets indhold, forløb og pædagogik

Goals
The purpose of this course is to address various theoretical and empirical aspects of contemporary sociology relating particularly to the topics of deviance and diagnosis of the times – and how these topics interrelate.

It does so by introducing the students to a wide variety of contemporary sociological (but also social- philosophical, social-psychological etc.) analysis and theories that covers the fields in mention.

The course is not only, however, introductory. It provides the students with the analytical skills enabling them to link empirical and theoretical forms of sociological analysis with each other, and ensures that the students can apply the different perspectives on contemporary society, especially relating to problems of deviance and challenges related to diagnosis of the times.

Moreover, the students will learn to understand as well as analyze argumentation, key concepts and historical background of the perspectives in question

Content
The purpose of this course is to address various theoretical and empirical aspects of contemporary sociology relating particularly to the topics of deviance and diagnosis of the times – and how these topics interrelate.

This course programme – that mainly deals with the interconnection of macro-sociological perspectives/theories and empirical studies - is particularly connected with “Hverdagsliv, Kultur og Emotioner” (Everyday Life, Culture and Emotions), which provides the students with a more micro- sociological oriented approach (theories and perspectives) to doing empirical work.
