Sociology is interested in the ways people shape the society they live in, and the ways society shapes them. Simply, it is the study of what modern society is and how it functions.

In the series’ inimitable style, Introducing Sociology traces the origins of sociology from industrialization, revolution and the Enlightenment through to globalization, neoliberalism and the fear of nationalism — introducing you to key thinkers, movements and concepts along the way.

You will develop insight into the world around you, as you engage your ‘sociological imagination’ and explore studies of the city, theories of power and knowledge, concepts of national, racial and sexual identity, and much more.

    So informative! Definitely worth reading, especially if you don't know much about sociology and would like to understand it better. This is a great place to start!

    Emotional labour involves us aligning private emotions with organizational expectations and involves either “deep acting” or “surface acting”.
    Deep acting occurs when a worker draws upon emotions they believe to be authentic to achieve a strong relationship with customers. Surface acting is when someone displays emotions they believe are inauthentic to conform to work rules and norms
