This seems like a good time to remind instructors that we have a series of image guides designed to make finding material for your classes as easy as possible. These guides collect SocImages posts organized in a way that follows standard syllabi for frequently-taught sociology courses.
We’ve got the basics:
- Introduction to Sociology, by Gwen Sharp (Nevada State College)
- Sociological Research Methods, by Lisa Wade (Occidental College)
- Sociology of Gender, by Mary Nell Trautner (University at Buffalo, SUNY)
- Family and Society, by Marcie Hambrick, MSW (Georgia State University)
- Sociology of Sport, by J.A. Carter (University of Cincinnati)
- Sociology of Work, by Lisa Wade (Occidental College)
- Sexuality and Society, by Amanda Jungels (Georgia State University)
- Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, by Calvin N. Ho (UCLA)
- Women and History, by Lisa Wade (Occidental College)
We hope they’re useful!
If you’d like to put an image guide together, we’re looking for sociology professors or graduate students to volunteer. The task requires browsing our archives, pulling out the most compelling posts, and arranging them in ways other instructors would find familiar and convenient. The Guides can cover entire courses, parts of courses, or be designed to help illustrate a well-known theory, article, or book. We’re even happy to have duplicate Guides, since every instructor is different.
Happy teaching!Lisa Wade, PhD is an Associate Professor at Tulane University. She is the author of American Hookup, a book about college sexual culture; a textbook about gender; and a forthcoming introductory text: Terrible Magnificent Sociology. You can follow her on Twitter and Instagram.
