SOCY 49.16 Community: Analysis & Action

This course will examine the idea of a safe, inclusive community and how it might be realized on a college campus. We will examine the tremendous changes that a society experiences as it moves from a social order based mainly on face-to-face interactions and obligations to one based on anonymous market forces, bureaucratic state power and virtual relationships. And we will look at how communities have endured despite these changes. We will look at the advantages and disadvantages of communities today, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of our longing for community. We will look at the practices that undermine community and the practices that support community. Finally, we will engage in action-oriented research projects concerned with community at Dartmouth.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
