Throughout the season I introduced the concepts of Karl Mannheim's Utopia and Emile Durkheim's Totem rather thoroughly; I will be expanding upon those concepts and introducing further ideas. Frantz Fanon, Michael Foucault, Alexis De Tocqueville, Max Weber, Mary Douglas (sporadically referenced throughout the 2010 season) will all be part of my analysis, and possibly more.
Where to begin? Below I have listed eight, 2010 season articles that incorporate Sociology; some articles feature a couple sentences, others a couple paragraphs on the subject. These should introduce, refresh or deepen your understanding of the concepts introduced during the season--Just going back and looking at these ideas broadened my scope going forward.
I'm excited for this project, as the research is for my first major Sociology essay independent from my studies at Berkeley. Please, keep following and any/all feedback is welcome.
Hopefully these ideas will bring better clarity as to how I see the 'Hawks and Sociology in the same realm, but also broaden your own interest in following sports, and the 'Hawks, beyond a purely physical level.
