Welcome to the Department of Sociology

Welcome to the Department of Sociology at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Ours is a research and teaching environment that emphasizes the theme of SOCIAL JUSTICE. We conduct research and teach in the interest areas of:

Students develop an understanding of both everyday social behavior and the structural factors that contribute to social injustices. In the seminar room and in the field, students also acquire the intellectual tools to identify and critically analyze social phenomena and trends, along with the methodological tools to conduct rigorous research.

The submission deadline for "GLOBALIZATION, CRITIQUE, AND SOCIAL THEORY:  NAVIGATING THE DIVIDE BETWEEN THEORY AND PRACTICE. AN INTERDISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE" has been extended to March 15, 2014. Click here for more details.
