Recommendation: Sociological Images

Erica (the photo curator) recommends…


Sociological Images “encourages all kinds of people to exercise and develop their sociological imagination” in the hope that “public discourse will increasingly include a sociological lens with which we can all learn about social processes and mechanisms, critique social inadequacies, and design functional and equitable alternatives.” Though they strive to cover all aspects of society, their section on gender traces the history of pink, asks us if teddy bears can be considered manly, and shows us what happens when boys play double dutch.
