  • The Activist Foundation of Sociology
    • Authors: Adair; S.
      Pages: 9 - 21
      Abstract: The founding of the Association for Humanist Sociology in 1977 extended and redefined the values and practices that constituted the territory of sociology. The effort to redefine this territory grew out of a vision and understanding that was both crafted within and a consequence of new left social movements. Sixties social activism allowed people to come to see in new ways how dominant groups maintained control over consciousness, common sense and public discourse. Reflection on our own roots provides a site from which to consider both a change in the dialectic of ideology and technology and the challenges we face in shaking off the constraints of austerity under neoliberalism.

  • Coterminous and Intersecting: Women's Rights and Women's Peace
           Mobilizations in the United States
    • Authors: Kutz-Flamenbaum; R. V.
      Pages: 22 - 46
      Abstract: This article examines the relationship between the National Organization for Women (NOW) and CODEPINK, a women’s peace organization in 2004. NOW and CODEPINK both sought to mobilize women to protest the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and also to fight against the threats to women’s rights that emerged from the policies of policies of the George W. Bush’s presidential administration. Using content analysis of e-mails sent to supporters and survey data from individuals at protests, I find that despite their overlapping agendas, there were significant differences in the two organization’s framing and tactical repertoires. CODEPINK drew upon individualistic maternalist framing and had a broad tactical repertoire. CODEPINK was able to draw women into protest in a way that resonated with popular cultural norms and recent women’s mobilizations. By contrast, NOW drew upon libera l, rights-based feminist framing that focused on legislative change and drew upon a narrow range of movement tactics. The article argues that rather than creating divisions and undermining collaboration, this diversity in women’s movements helps to foster a symbiotic relationship that mobilized diverse women. Taking a long historical view, I argue that this symbiosis is fundamental for the longevity and continued vitality of the U.S. women’s movement.

  • Whom Will Sociology Serve? Transforming the Discipline by Engaging
    • Authors: Pennell, J. R; Maher, T.
      Pages: 47 - 63
      Abstract: This article examines the debate on public sociology through the community-based work of the authors and their students. Critiquing the continued focus of public sociology on policy makers, funders, and other sociologists, we argue that sociologists must reorder their priorities by serving the public itself. Although large-scale studies play an important purpose in the discipline, sociology must once again value smaller-scale "organic" research grounded in local communities to remain relevant. Furthermore, a "critical constructionist" theoretical framework offers a conceptual approach that counters the distanced, ameliorative standpoint of mainstream sociology. We offer programmatic ways sociologists can combine their teaching, research, and community service to engage students in learning the discipline through change-oriented work.

  • Challenging the "Flutie Factor": Intercollegiate Sports, Undergraduate
           Enrollments, and the Neoliberal University
    • Authors: Peterson-Horner, E; Eckstein, R.
      Pages: 64 - 85
      Abstract: University policy makers and many outside observers generally believe that highly visible intercollegiate athletic success increases the quantity and quality of prospective student applications, as well as bolstering a school’s financial and academic standing. This is sometimes referred to as the "Flutie Factor" in reference to Boston College quarterback Doug Flutie who led his team to a last-minute 1984 football victory on national television, resulting in an alleged windfall of undergraduate applications and other organizational largess. Using previously untapped data from the 2005 Educational Longitudinal Survey, underanalyzed data from the Art & Science Group, and original data from three universities, this study challenges the conventional wisdom that highly visible and successful intercollegiate sports programs necessarily improve a school’s undergraduate population. We suggest that continued uncritical adherence to empirically problematic ideas like the Flutie Factor reflect a commercialized and corporatized "neoliberal" university, where branding, marketing, and profit maximization trump educational substance. In addition to being empirically suspect, this expensive, neoliberal approach toward sports-based marketing remains strangely unindicted as a contributor to undergraduate education’s skyrocketing cost.

  • She Has a Pain Problem, Not a Pill Problem: Chronic Pain Management,
           Stigma, and the Family--An Autoethnography
    • Authors: Wilbers; L. E.
      Pages: 86 - 111
      Abstract: People with chronic noncancer pain who rely on prescription opioid painkillers for treatment experience stigmatization, both within and outside of the health care system, which hinders their ability to achieve adequate pain relief. This barrier to appropriate treatment affects not only individual patients but their families as well. In this article, I provide an autoethnographic account of my experience as the daughter of a mother with severe chronic pain who manages her condition with prescription opioid painkillers. Through personal narrative, I explore how I, and members of my family, experience and interpret barriers my mom faces in accessing effective treatment, and how even now, over a decade after my mom’s pain started, the stigma surrounding prescription opioids continues to permeate every facet of our lives.
