The Value of Sociology in Changing Times
The state of higher education is dynamic and the recent shifts in the cultural and political climate of our country have made it even more important for sociology to remain a relevant and vital discipline in our colleges and universities. Our work is based on understanding how people affect and are affected by the structures and forces that govern our social worlds. Intellectual freedom and critical thought in higher education have come under fire in ways that remind us that we are not immune to these political, social, and cultural shifts. To that end, we ask: what value does sociology bring in these changing times? How can sociology remain a relevant and important discipline in the face of shifting ideologies? How do we preserve sociology as a profession and perspective? How can sociology bolster its relevance for students, faculty, and our communities amid shifting contexts? We invite you to explore these questions and more at the 2024 South Carolina Sociological Association annual meeting.
