About this course

Il corso studia le società del presente e del passato. La sociologia ci spinge ad esaminare le realtà prossime, la vita di tutti i giorni: come la gente lavora, viaggia, vive, si muove e come partecipa, quali sono i collegamenti tra questioni pubbliche e problemi personali.
La sociologia è un “punto di vista” dal quale osservare i fenomeni sociali, non l’unico, ma utile ed indispensabile per dar conto della complessità della realtà sociale.
Le dieci lezioni tratteranno i diversi ambiti e/o aspetti di fenomeni sociali (demografici, normativi, spaziali, culturali, religiosi, educativi, economici, politici), dedicando particolare attenzione al tema delle disuguaglianze che per molti aspetti è un oggetto privilegiato della considerazione sociologica.

This aim of this MOOC is to study past and current societies. Through sociology,
we get to examine aspects of everyday life such as the way people work, travel,
live, commute, take part in the civil society and how they link public and private
issues. Sociology is a “point of view” from which to observe the social phenomena.
Although it is not the only one, it certainly is useful and essential to comprehend
how complex social realities are. This course will deal with the several aspects of
the social phenomena (demographic, normative, spatial, cultural, religious, educational, economical and political ones) and focus on inequality, being this topic one the privileged subjects of sociology.
