Sociology blogs are a great place to keep up to date on current trends in sociology and read sociological perspectives onto today’s issues and news. Here is a selection of noteworthy blogs in sociology.

Sociological Images

—  See the General Social Survey (GSS) in action: Are Conservatives Happier Than Liberals?

Sociological Images is designed to encourage all kinds of people to exercise and develop their sociological imagination by presenting brief sociological discussions of compelling and timely imagery that spans the breadth of sociological inquiry.

 Montclair SocioBlog

—  Interested in studying Facebook? Check out America’s Team is Not in the Super Bowl.

A blog by some members of the Montclair State Sociology Department — what we’ve been thinking, reading, seeing, or doing.

Everyday Sociology

Welcome to Everydaysociologyblog.com, a site that features interesting, informative, and most of all entertaining commentary from sociologists around the United States. Come to this site regularly to get a sociological take on what is happening in the news (and on what should be in the news).

Racism Review

RacismReview is intended to provide a credible and reliable source of information for journalists, students and members of the general public who are seeking solid evidence-based research and analysis of “race,” racism, ethnicity, and immigration issues, especially as they undergird and shape U.S. society within a global setting. We also provide substantive research and analysis on local, national, and global resistance to racial and ethnic oppression, including the many types of antiracist activism.

Understanding Society (Daniel Little)

This site addresses a series of topics in the philosophy of social science. What is involved in “understanding society”? The blog is an experiment in thinking, one idea at a time. Look at it as a web-based, dynamic monograph on the philosophy of social science and some foundational issues about the nature of the social world.

A (Budding) Sociologist’s Commonplace Book

My name is Dan Hirschman and I am a (budding) Sociologist. I am a PhD candidate at the University of Michigan in Sociology and the certificate program in Science, Technology and Society (STS). Broadly, I am interested in economic sociology, the sociology of economics, organizations, and science studies. Specifically, I am interested in the interaction of quantification, law, organizations and knowledge-production.

Family Inequality (Philip N. Cohen)

On this site I keep a running account of the connections between families and inequality. The nature of this relationship is one of the central problems of inequality in modern societies. To the extent that our well-being is determined by the family we land in, our imagined meritocracy is more illusion than achievement.
