SOC103- Test #1 Review Italicized phrases: important vocabulary from study guide January 19th: approaches, theories, and vocabulary- lecture notes Relational/dialectical framework: an analytical framework of study in which there is continuous change, and where one variable cannot be understood without the other E.g. variables X and Y are related dialectically, so each variable affects the other, changes in X will mean corresponding changes in Y and vice versa If X affects Y, and Y affects X, then corresponding relations after their first interaction will differ slightly X needs to be understood in relation to Y, how is X present within Y? The two are mutually constitutive There are several major kinds of dialectical relationships to examine within sociology Micro and macro (individual and society) You cannot understand the micro without looking at the macro Sociological imagination: the ability to grasp intersection between individuals and society, being able to see the connection between biography and history Look at the micro and macro relational approach will allow us to see what happens to the individual (micro) and why it happens that way (macro) Seeing public issues in what looks like a personal issue E.g. a native teen committing suicide (micro) may seem like a personal issue, but when you look at the wider context of native issues it is part of a larger systemic problem (macro) E.g. unemployment of one person (micro) could look like a personal issue, but it is actually part of a wider issue of the capitalist creation of the global economy in which manufacturing sectors are moved overseas for cheaper labour (macro) Structure and agency Established structures and their relationship with the possibilities for change How much agency do we actually have? When you’re born, you enter into an already existing social structure of institutions, laws, norms, values etc., you focus on fitting in Eventually you learn to fit into the system as a whole, you internalize the idea that things are the way they are for a reason, you are not exercising your agency

By carrying on in life without exercising your agency, you’re allowing the pre existing structures to dictate the status quo You’re reinforcing, maintaining, and reproducing the structure Structure limits opportunity but can also be interrupted by one’s agency Gender, class, and ethnicity Intersectionality: one does not experience any of the three alone, all three factors affect one another The experience of a middle class, white, male is different to that of a middle class, black, trans woman Local/global north and south Connections between the developed and underdeveloped, the first and third worlds Poor in the third world are exploited by the wealthy in the first world The status of the first world directly affects the third world and vice versa Political and economic State laws, policies, and violence are directly affected by, and affect in turn, the state of production, capital, and wealth distribution
