Ways to Follow
In addition to the home page and traditional blog form, you can follow the site on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Pinterest. On the first two I am experimenting with tagging posts with hashtags (e.g., #socrace, #socculture), clicking on the hashtag will bring up every post with that tag.
For quick and easy overview of SocImages material, visit our Pinterest Account. The site allows you to browse through almost 10,000 images and videos without any text. You can borrow the material directly, or click through to the blog to read the analysis. There are more than 25 boards featuring the fundamentals of sociology as well as those with content related to media and marketing, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, violence, economics, and other fun stuff.
Course Guides and Collections
Course Guides collect strong SocImages posts organized in a way that follows standard syllabi for frequently-taught sociology courses or cover particular books, articles, or theorists. Collections are topical and usually inspired by current events. If you’re a sociology professor or graduate student and would like to volunteer – browse our archives, pull out the most compelling posts, and arrange them in ways other instructors would find familiar and convenient — I’d love to feature your collection!

Have a Guide you might like to put together? Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m even happy to have duplicate Guides, since every instructor is different.
I’ve collected a handful of readings and a couple short videos might be great for classes. See and download the class readings here.
