The Social Life of Organizations and Markets
SOC 226
Spring 2012
Section: 01  

This course investigates the role of networks, meaning, taste, and power in organizations and markets. We will pay special attention to how people creatively operate within the confines of these institutions and in the process, transform them to suit their individual or collective goals. Cases include how low-status employees navigate working in luxury hotels, the social performance of working on Wall St., and how regular people have successfully forced major corporations to change.
