Public Sociology Quote
"As mirror and conscience of society, sociology must define,
promote and inform public debate about deepening class and racial
inequalities, new gender regimes, environmental degradation,
market fundamentalism, state and non-state violence. I believe that
the world needs public sociology - a sociology that transcends the
academy - more than ever. Our potential publics are multiple,
ranging from media audiences to policy makers, from silenced
minorities to social movements. They are local, global, and national.
As public sociology stimulates debate in all these contexts, it inspires
and revitalizes our discipline. In return, theory and research give
legitimacy, direction, and substance to public sociology.
Burawoy, M. 2004 American Sociological Association Presidential
address: For public sociology. 2005 Volume 56, Issue 2.
