Awesome summer course for ESP students

The department of sociology is offering the following course with ESP students in mind. The course offers transition to degree supports and creative, innovative course content. No prerequisites are required for this second year course. OPEN TO ALL.

ANTH 2815A/SOCI 2810A Special Topics in Anthropology/Sociology: Creative Social Science

Late summer term: July 4-August 16
Tues & Thurs 2:35-5:25 p.m., Online synchronous


Why have podcasts and audiobooks become so popular in recent years? Why are so many sociologists and anthropologists now designing and making graphic novels, zines, comics and audio programming as part of their research? How can we think critically and creatively about why academic experts and non-experts alike are making, and using comics, zines, audio programs, and graphic novels to tell more engaging and accessible stories about the world we live in? In this course we will explore these questions and issues through ‘doing’ i.e. students will create and use different types of alternative media- comics, photos, audio, and zines—to creatively and critically tell social scientific stories about the world they live in.
