Description
Sociology Lecture #1 The “sociological imagination” – individual experiences connected to a social context, C.Wright Mills (1959) The sociological imagination allows people to understand the relationship between public or social issues and private troubles.

In Becker’s first graduate seminar on writing he asked students to describe their practical writing habits. He found students approach the writing process with anxiety and apprehension. Emile Durkeim – work on suicide, the more strongly anchored or attached a person is to society (though their social relationships, such as marriage, religion, gender), the less likely they are to commit suicide. - Protestants did not provide integration vs. other religions Social Solidarity: how much you see people with shared beliefs Men Vs. Women; women will have lower rates of suicide = strongly anchored to society
